Variable control types

You can create the following control types:

Calendar

Lets you filter your charts on a single date or date range

If your “Calendar” control takes in a date range, its corresponding dashboard variable has two properties that store the start date and end date of that date range:

  • {CALENDAR_NAME.START}: Holds the start date

  • {CALENDAR_NAME.END}: Holds the end date

Make sure to replace CALENDAR_NAME with the name of the control when referencing these properties.

You can group data by:

  • Minute

  • Hour

  • Date

  • Week

  • Month

  • Quarter

  • Year

Date slider

its corresponding dashboard variable has two properties that store the start date and end date of that date range:

  • {DATE_SLIDER_NAME.START}: Holds the start date

  • {DATE_SLIDER_NAME.END}: Holds the end date

Make sure to replace DATE_SLIDER_NAME with the name of the control when referencing these properties.

Hidden variable

Lets you set filter values that are not directly accessible on your dashboard

Unlike the other control types, viewers can’t interact with “Hidden variable” controls. These are especially helpful for customizing dashboard subscriptions for different groups of people, or if you want to share a dashboard but do not want viewers to be able to the change the value of the filter.

You can set the data type of the “Hidden variable” control when you create it. If you set the data type to Date range, its corresponding dashboard variable will have two properties that store the start date and end date of that date range:

  • {HIDDEN_VARIABLE_NAME.START}: Holds the start date

  • {HIDDEN_VARIABLE_NAME.END}: Holds the end date

Make sure to replace HIDDEN_VARIABLE_NAME with the name of the control when referencing these properties.

Its corresponding dashboard variable has two properties that store the selected start and end points of the range:

  • {RANGE_INPUT_NAME.START}: Holds the selected start point of the range.

  • {RANGE_INPUT_NAME.END}: Holds the selected end point of the range.

Make sure to replace RANGE_INPUT_NAME with the name of the control when referencing these properties.
