Widgets help you present business information quickly and clearly. After you create a storyboard, you can start adding widgets to it.
You can add the following widget types to a storyboard:
Visualization widgets, also named visualizations – Custom-built charts, filters, and tables based on a user-defined dataset. Examples include bar charts, area charts, network charts, and geospatial charts.
Pictogram widgets, also named pictograms – Icons that help quickly convey a visual message. Examples include lines, rectangles, equation shapes, flowcharts, and images.
Other widgets – Images and interactive components that provide specific services, such as connecting to Tableau or IBM Cognos TM1, accessing websites and social media.
For details on adding widgets to a storyboard, see Add widgets.
A widget is based on a single dataset. However, each widget can use its own dataset if you have multiple datasets.
You can interact with the widgets on a storyboard. For details, see Interact with widgets.
