Features & Configuration Site Settings Reference

With Features & Configuration site settings, you control whether or not all sorts of things appear in your site. By default, most are already enabled, but you can use Visual KPI Designer to turn off anything.

These site settings affect configuration of your entire site (Visual KPI instance). You’ll find Features & Configuration under the Site Settings icon () in the Document Actions panel.

Two items are not enabled by default:

  • Enable Near Me if you want site users to filter geolocation objects that are physically located within a selected mile radius.
  • If you want to give access to your site at a micro level to Active Directory or security groups, you will need to enable Object-level Security.

You’ll find both of these settings in the Features worksheet.
