Using the New Drill-Down Feature

Cognos Analytics dashboards help monitor business metrics at a glance with a set of visualizations on one page. They allow for quick data discovery and experimentation by enabling you to quickly change parameters to view different slices of the data. Since 11.0.10, Cognos dashboards include a drill-down feature that allows you to view more granular data.
