The Navigator view shows the element hierarchy for the selected scorecard. In addition, if the Details Pane is enabled, it is shown on the lower part of the right side frame. Information that is shown for each element can be defined in the view designer, which can be opened with the Show View Designer button at the upper right corner. This opens the View Designer view, with which you can define settings for views and save them as presets available in the menu that's accessible through the Views button.

 

You can sort the contents of the view by clicking the column titles. There are the following things to note about the sorting:

Sorting is done for each level separately, i.e. the main level is sorted first, then the second level branches are sorted individually under the main level elements, then the third level elements under the second level elements and so forth.

A filled (black) triangle in the column title indicates primary sorting order, i.e. the column marked with this is sorted first. The sorting order (ascending or descending) is indicated by the direction of the black arrow. The order can be reversed by clicking on the column title again.

An empty triangle indicates secondary sorting order, i.e. all columns marked with these are sorted after the column marked for primary sorting is sorted.

 

Click the Edit button to change the view to editing mode, in which there are input boxes for all displayed elements for which the input type is "Value is typed in" and you have rights to edit the values. In the edit mode, click the Submit values button to submit any changes you have done to the values and to close the editing mode.

 

Click the Period button to open the Period selection view for defining the period that used by default in the view. You can still configure various table columns to display e.g. values of different periods with the Period and Period offset options available for various table fields in the View Designer view.

 

Click the Series button to open a view in which you can define the series that is used by default in the view. You can still configure various table columns to display e.g. trends of different series with the Series option available for various table fields in the View Designer view. The "Default series" option uses the default series of the value settings.

 

Click the + button to expand all visible branches. Click the - button to collapse all visible branches.

 

Click the Export to Office button in the toolbar to open the Export to Office tool frame. This is visible only if QPR Web Services Foundation is installed and available.

 

Note that when the Navigator view is bookmarked, also the tree state (i.e. what branches are open) is saved into the bookmark.
