Drill on a Heat Map

Drilling allows you to view data at levels other than those that appear in the heat map. You can drill down, up, or across attributes and some metrics.

If your heat map displays categories, you can drill from a specific category to that category's subcategories. If you drill down from the Electronics category, only the subcategories within Electronics, such as Audio Equipment and Cameras appear.
