An active dashboard is an extension of an active report. Therefore, all active report features are available for an active dashboard.
An active dashboard is best suited for developing storyboards with multiple charts and tables that give you a complete view of a business issue. You can send active dashboards as stand-alone dashboard pages or incorporate them into corporate dashboards.
A typical active dashboard displays several different scenarios, each on its own page, that are accessible by selecting the appropriate panel at the top of the page. The following image shows an example of an active dashboard with three scenarios, Revenue Report (selected), Regional Report, and Product Report.
