How to create a dashboard with tabs using a CSV file where each tab is a report?

Communicator

Hi,

I need help in creating dashboards using a CSV file. The CSV file has one month of data. I have to prepare weekly reports (8) and monthly reports (5) in Splunk. I have created all these reports in Splunk, but what I want is to put all these reports in a dashboard with some drop-down, check boxes or radio buttons etc.,

Weekly means data from Sunday to Saturday of every week. total of 8 weekly reports I have
Monthly means data from 1st of that month to last day of the month. total of 5 monthly reports I have
from the CSV. If I will select a date for particular I want the reports for those days only.

Is it possible to create tabs in dashboard display each report in each tab, so for weekly, it is 8 tabs.

I need your help in preparing these dashboards for weekly and monthly reports. If you want I will send sample reports and sample data and queries for those reports.

Thanks in advance

Hi @Laya123,
If I understand your question correctly, it sounds like you might want to consider using form inputs to manage dashboard behavior. I would suggest taking a look at these documentation resources:

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.3.1/Viz/CreateandeditdashboardsviatheUI#Add_a_search.2...
http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.3.1/Viz/Buildandeditforms

And you can check out the Dashboard Examples app. The "Link Switcher" and other "Form Input Examples" in here might help:

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have other questions.
