Particularly, dashboards receive variables instead of inputs in the query window that appear before data shown. The distinct characteristic of variables is that they are required so filtering is a must, even though, one can select a range that includes all the data.

2 Dashboard composition

Dashboards are composed by different type of objects, among them: charts, 3D graphics and tables. Concretely, dashboards do not modify the data, agreeing with the idea that they are similar to reporting objects. The first image one is going to see when opening a dashboard is the query that oblies the user to fill the variables:

Example of dashboard query.

Some examples of dashboard's type objects are shown below:

Tables can also include links inside them. In the aforementioned example, banks are underlined because they are linked to the corresponding bank's form.

Charts, in turn, can contain a tab to display the same data in table's form, which, at some cases, is useful when the user needs to switch between the data representation format.

Aswell, dashboards include the option to represent two independent variables in 3D graphs.

Aditionally, it is also possible to include more than one chart in the same box. This feature could be useful in cases os time evolution:
