Using previous selections while clicking in a new document in MicroStrategy Mobile

Hello there!

Today let’s talk about a very quick tip of how to pass selected elements in previous selectors from one document to another in MicroStrategy Mobile.

You just have to:

  1. Get the URL for a dashboard;
  2. Create a link using an image, for example;
  3. Add “&prevMsgID=” parameters to the URL. Like this:


MicroStrategy will automatically use the previous elements selected for new document.

Hope it helps.

God bless you!

Number format in MicroStrategy

Hello there!

My friend Diogo Martins, told me a simple but powerful custom formatting to numbers that can help you so much!

Here is the tip:

Think that you have a Profit metric with a number like this: 1.304.141

And you want to divide that by 1000.

You just have to:

  1. Format the value and go to Custom
  2. Add a format like: 0,


And now you will get your number like: 1304

The trick is the comma (,) at the end.

If you add 1 comma you will dividing by 1.000

If you add 2 commas you will dividing by 1.000.000

And so on…

So, just add commas after the 0 (for number) and you will format your number in a much better way than dividing it in your metric.

Hope it helps!

God bless you!
