Amazon QuickSight launches dataset parameters to optimize slicing and dicing experiences

We are introducing a new kind of parameter in Amazon QuickSight that will help users create interactive experiences in their dashboards. With Dataset Parameters, authors can optimize the experience and load time of dashboards that are connected-live to external SQL-based sources. When readers interact with their data, the selection and actions they make in controls, filters and visuals can be propagated to the data sources via live, custom, parameterized SQL queries. By mapping multiple Dataset Parameters to Analysis parameters, users can create a wide variety of experiences using controls, user actions, parameterized URLs, and calculated fields, as well as create dynamic visuals’ titles, descriptions, bookmarks, emails and PDF reports.
