By using PerformancePoint Dashboard Designer, you can include KPI Details reports in your dashboards. A KPI Details report is a view type that provides additional information about scorecard values and properties. As dashboard users click cells in a scorecard, the KPI Details report updates to display particular information about that value. For example, when dashboard users click a value in the Target column, the KPI Details report displays details such as how performance is calculated, what banding settings are used, and what kind of indicator is used.

In a PerformancePoint dashboard, a KPI Details report alongside its corresponding scorecard might resemble the following image:

To display information, a KPI Details report must be connected to a scorecard in the dashboard. This means that a KPI Details report is not used in a dashboard without its accompanying scorecard on the same dashboard page. However, you can create and configure a KPI Details report one time, and then reuse it in multiple dashboards, connected to multiple scorecards.
