Using hotspots to display field-relevant details
In this example, you’ll learn to create a hotspot with employee contact details.
Step 1: Create a profile. The profile will determine the hotspot contents.
– Click the Profile tool on the View menu.
– This opens the Profile panel.
– Click the link in the middle of the panel to create a new profile.
– Name the profile and select the fields you’d like to include. Available fields appear on the left. Select a field and click the Add button to add it to the profile.
*Note: All fields are included by default. Use the remove button to remove fields.
– Use the Format button and Fill Color option to highlight a field.
– Click OK.
– The Profile is now created.
Step 2: Now it’s time to turn your profile into a hotspot. First, select a field in your box layout that you’d like to activate the hotspot. When a viewer’s cursor is on this field, the hotspot will display.
– Right-click a box and select Box Properties; click the Box Layout tab.
– Select a field in the box layout and click the Hotspots button. In this example the Full Name field will activate the hotspot.
– Check the Make Hotspot box and select the Profile.
– Click OK.
– Select ‘Apply to Entire Chart’ to enable the hotspot feature for all boxes; click OK.
– The hotspot is now visible when the cursor hovers over the name field.
– Publish your chart to HTML or to the OrgPlus Plugin to make hotspots visible when sharing your charts with others.
