Creating Interactions Just Got Easier with the Advanced Interaction Editor

Interactions, previously called bindings, power many parts of Einstein Analytics dashboards. The new Advanced Interaction Editor helps you create interactions for widgets and queries without leaving the dashboard designer. Use clicks instead of code to create multiple interactions for the same widget or query, preview the results, and insert the interactions all from the new editor.

Where: This change applies to Einstein Analytics in Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic. Einstein Analytics is available in Developer Edition and for an extra cost in Enterprise, Performance, and Unlimited editions.

How: Click Advanced Editor in the widget or query panel to get started. Select a query (1), source data (2), and interaction type (3). The Advanced Interaction Editor generates a preview of your interaction (4) and the result (5). To add your interaction to the SAQL or JSON, copy (6) and paste it (7). Click Save to add the interaction to your dashboard.
