Tuesday, January 21st at 10AM PT/ 11AM AZ/ 1PM ET

In this live demo you will learn how to create multiple block reports within a document, then apply multiple drill blocks in a way to layer the blocks to show those blocks conditionally. In Part 1 of the presentation from last year we utilized the drill bar feature to drive the reporting. This year in Part 2 we will be utilizing input controls in a much more advanced way to make our reporting even more flexible. It has been enhanced to include the use of stop lights as part of the layering of the reports and will open your eyes to a whole new way of creating and layering reports in Webi, in ways never done before. It will give your reports more of a visualization like appearance.
