Display Report Name/Title on Canvas Dashboard

Hello - is it possible to display the report title for a table (not a chart) in a dashboard? Seems like this should be an easy option to set, but I can't seem to find it!

Hi Misty,

Thanks for reaching out. Are you testing this on a Canvas or non-Canvas dashboard? If you create a non-Canvas dashboard you should see titles by default regardless of whether the report is a Chart or Table as long as you don't have Hide Report Name towards the top-right of the Report Properties toggled off:

/a7362bb0127cf574a421652b293f83e9

If in a Canvas Dashboard, I don't see an option to display Title whether Chart or not:

/ffcea31d389b773c20b0f9cc32ef4eb6

I believe the thought was that Canvas is to be as flexible as possible, so if you want a title you can add it via a Text Widget and not be stuck with one font towards the top-left the Report/Chart, but if there's an option you've found in Canvas mode to accomplish this other that a Text Widget or within the the Chart itself when opening the report, then please let me know and I can assist in looking for same in a Table on dashboard

Regards,

Mike

Yes, this is a canvas dashboard. I can turn on/off the title in the chart/report builder itself (not the dashboard builder), but there is no option for that with a table. I just assumed I was overlooking a setting.

So for tables, titles have to be manually added with a text widget - that seems odd, but ok :)

Thank you!

Hi Misty,

Yeah, I feel it’s a bit odd too. Perhaps we can change this to an Idea item with the idea being to add a toggle like there is in Non-Canvas Dashboards to display report titles. Please let me know if you’d be interested in that and I can go ahead and convert this and submit an internal enhancement request for this.

Regards,

Mike
