Parameterization

Parameterization is a best practice for designing BI dashboards, including mobile BI. Filters and queries allow users to select from options – or parameters – to get different views of data very quickly.

While there may be many different filter options for the desktop, filters on mobile should be kept to a minimum. Add a search option on a dropdown list, for example, to allow users to find the values they need. Providing the right set of filters will help your users make better use of their mobile reports and dashboards.
