Actions are used to add interactivity to visualizations on a page. Actions are activated using supported click and/or hover gestures. Each of these gestures can be configured to handle multiple Actions, and when multiple Actions are configured an end user will be prompted with a context menu. Context menus allow an end user to select which one of the configured Actions should be used. An example would be multiple “Switch to Page” Actions configured to a single click gesture. In this scenario, a click gesture will reveal a context menu containing a list of the target pages, and an end user will be able to choose which page they would like to switch to.
To add an Action, enter “Edit Mode” for a page. This is done by clicking on the Edit Mode button in the breadcrumb bar.
Edit mode will enable additional options for each visualization. You can expose these options by clicking on the gear icon in the upper right corner of a visualization.
The Manage Actions dialog shows all Actions configured for the associated visualization. If this is a new visualization, and no Actions have been configured yet, then the list will be empty.
The example below shows a “Click Item” event defined that will trigger the “Show Record Details” Action.
