Dossiers deliver a completely reimagined approach to filtering data.

With visual filters, users can embed any MicroStrategy visualization into the filter panel of a dossier, providing a visual and intuitive way to filter information without taking up valuable screen real estate.

MicroStrategy makes it easy to seamlessly share and distribute analytics throughout any organization. Business users can upload self-service dossiers to a centralized environment or library to enhance their analyses with modeled enterprise data, swap out localized data with trusted enterprise sources, or share their findings with colleagues. And starting with MicroStrategy 10.9, analysts and data stewards can watermark content with a 'certified' stamp.
