featureToggles

featureToggles

Vizzly "feature toggles" allow you to control the user's experience of the dashboard. This enables you to tailer the Vizzly experience to your users. For example using feature toggles you could provide a completely static dashboard, or one without the component library and only allow users to create "standalone" components directly on the dashboard.

Usage

Feature toggles are provided through the featureToggles property. For example;

<Vizzly.Dashboard
  featureToggles={{
    showGlobalFilters: true,
    canEditComponentLibrary: false,
    canEditComponentsOnDashboard: true,
    // ...
  }}
/>

canDownloadPDF

canDownloadViewData

Allow downloading the data used directly for the chart, table or map.

canDownloadViewAsPNG

Performance

unloadOffScreenViews

By default, Vizzly automatically loads views as you scroll down the dashboard. Once a view appears, it will remain and be refreshed by dashboard filters as needed.

It might be more advantageous for your dashboard to unload views as the user scrolls through the dashboard. This means when a dashboard filter is changed, only the views currently visible will be reloaded and the remaining will refresh as the user scrolls down the page.
