Interactive Drill Down Reports

InetSoft's award winning reporting software offers users sophisticated drill down report tools that allow those with minimal technical expertise to assemble comprehensive reports. View the example below to learn more about the Style Intelligence solution.

A drill-down will allow you to access information associated with a report element. It is often used to show the detail behind a summary value. Our example utilizes the 'Interactive' report.

In the 'Interactive' report you can drill down on different report elements by just clicking on the hyperlinks, i.e., one of the bars in the 'Revenue by Year' chart, one of the States in the 'Sales by Geography' section, or one of the company names in the 'Purchaser List'. Elements even support multiple hyperlinks, which will appear in a popup hyperlink menu.

If a hyperlink is ambiguous, you will be shown a pop-up dialog with a list of possible options for the drill-down.
