Switch to a Board is the main navigation mechanism in AppBoard other than the Stacks available to the user. Typically this action is used in conjunction with other actions to either drill-down in context to show another dashboard with additional information, or cross-navigate to another board in context.
For example, a top level dashboard may show a summary of application health. By clicking a particular application this can trigger a Switch to a Board action, along with some other SSF or CSF filtering actions, to present another application specific dashboard showing more details about the selected application.
Refer to Managing Actions for general information on adding / editing / deleting actions.
The following settings are available:
- Board: a drop-down selection that selects the target board. If the target board doesn't exist yet you can use the Add Board button for convenience to create a new child-board.
- Use Context Label Field: Enabling this, and selecting a field from the data collection, will add the value of the field based on the row selected by the user to the child-board title in the board breadcrumb trail. So for example:
- no context label: Child Board
- with context label: Child Board: Field Value
