Saved Search Chart Control Settings

Add a control that displays a Saved Search chart.

Control Description

The Saved Search Chart control embeds a chart from a Saved Search into a Screen. The Saved Search chart visualizes the latest Saved Search result data at the time the Screen displays. The Saved Search chart is interactive as if it were in the Charts tab of its Saved Search. By embedding a Saved Search chart into a Screen widens that chart's viewability to more stakeholders or even individuals who are not users in your organization by allowing anonymous users access ProcessMaker via the Web Entry package.

Use the Saved Search Chart control to visualize Saved Search results directly within Screens in the following ways:

  • Request participants can view the current chart configured for a Saved Search using the latest Request data at the time the Request participant views the Screen.

  • Request participants who do not have access to Collections can view charts for Saved Searches based on a Collection.

This control is only available for the following Screen types:
