Conditional Display

The mini-tab container is used to display multiple visuals in a single container; the container is made up of a number of tabs, and the user can switch between the tabs to display a different visual. The mini-tabs can be configured to hide tabs (as shown below) - making it impossible for the user to manually change tabs. Instead, designers will wire up the mini-tab to a slicer. The slicer, in turn will have actions defined, that trigger a change in the mini-tab - effectively delivering conditional display.

Note: this feature is not available in the Community Edition.

The dashboard designer can use this technique to also tailor a single dashboard for multiple audiences, simply by creating conditions that will control which tab is displayed based on the slicer selection. Similarly, mini-tabs used in Publish, can be used with slicer actions to change the rendered content on pages based on the slicer selections that drive the publication.

Printing for Conditional Display

When printing and exporting a slide or presentation featuring a mini-tabs container with conditional display, the tab that corresponds to the currently selected slicer element will be rendered.
