DataNAV: model as data source

3.15K viewsQuantrix Feedback

Hi – in using datalink and datanav I notice there is one feature that datalink has that datanav does not.

I can use datalink with a 2D matrix in the current model as a data source. However, datanav does not offer this option.

Would it be possible to add in a feature whereby datanav can use any model as a datasource, and (similar to datalink) it is possible to configure a view of each matrix as a 2D table (with linked categories appearing as foreign keys between the tables)?

This would allow things like easily calculating aggregates over a category but then grouping by values in a linked matrix.


Hi – that feature will not be part of the 4.0 software but I will certainly add your comments in our database for future release consideration.

You may want to consider a DataPush > DataLink loop with a database as a possible solution. This webinar will help demonstrate this concept.




Hi There!
Is the feature of using a model as data source in Quantrix Modeler 4.0.
l really need that feature


Hi – thanks for the post. Having the ability to turn a Quantrix matrix into a DataNAV data source would be quite useful. Thank you for the feedback and I will add your vote to this request in our database.
