The dropdown component creates a dropdown menu on your analysis sheet to select values directly from a data source. This data source is taken directly from your data model.

By selecting a value from the dropdown, the user will automatically create a selection.

This can (for example) be used to filter for various suppliers or customers.


The dropdown component allows to create selections based on data within your data model:

  1. Click on the dropdown to expand it.

  2. Select all or none with the top checkbox.

  3. Search for values.

  4. Select from the data entries.

Dropdown configuration

In the dropdown settings, you can define:

  1. The placeholder text on the dropdown.

  2. The PQL statement to get the dimension to choose from. This is where we can set the content of our dropdown list.

  3. Set if the user can select multiple or only single values from the dropdown.
