Zooming in Mobile

On tablet-type devices, the PMF dashboard locks and zoom is not available during Broadcast. You can tap on chart and grid components to broadcast changes of a dimensional drill or object to the overall dashboard, without zooming.

Zoom is implemented using a separate button located on the bottom right of the dashboard. Tapping the Zoom button zooms the top-left gadget on the Dashboard to full-screen, and you can swipe between the different gadgets from Zoom view.
