Cool URL API events for MicroStrategy Mobile

Hello there!

I’ve already spoke about how to create a manual back button in MicroStrategy Mobile, and now I am going to talk about more cool events that we can create using URL API for Mobile. To do all those examples below you just have to create a link in an image or textfield, for example, and insert the URL of the example in the “Navigate to URL” field.

1. Email a screenshot of document

With this event, you can create a screenshot of your panel and send it using the email from Mobile devices automatically.

Just use this url below:

mstr://?evt=3037&emailSubject=Look!

You can change the subject of the email just changing the &emailSubject parameter value.

2. Display an Information Window

You can use grid/graphs to open an information window to show more info about that specific element that you have tapped. But sometimes you want to display a help information window just tapping an image or text.

You can do it using this url below:

mstr://?evt=2048500&panelName=NameOfThePanel

You just have to change the &panelName parameter value to use your panel stack information window name. You can see the name of the panel with a right click on your panel stack -> Properties and formatting -> General -> And then copy the Name field value.

3. Re-prompt a document

Sometimes users don’t know how to re-prompt a document, that filter button isn’t that intuitive, and now, you can create your own re-prompt button!

Just use this URL below:

mstr://pr

That’s it for now.

Hope it helps.

God bless you.
