Dynamic Text Chart

Idea Logged

I would like to be able to create a dynamic text chart, similar to the "Numeric Display" chart. Something similar to Parameter Replacement, but perhaps with more customization abilities, akin to the Numeric Display chart.

Hi Ajinkya,

I responded in your personal ticket as well, but I actually just found a potential workaround that may work for you. There is a community item: Is there anyway to create dynamic text labels in charts/reports? It seems that there is a way to dynamically display the report name, report description, and the first filter, using Parameter Replacements. You can view the Wiki entry for Parameter Replacements here. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Ajinkya,

Disregard. Parameter Replacement's as they currently exist won't help you get string results from a dimension to appear in a customizable way without adding additional functionality. It still seems something similar to the Numeric Display Chart, except with Text would be the ultimate goal here.

This is very much a requirement we would like to see - we actually have requirements from Customers who need this sort of thing

The ability to have a Text Display for a Dimension would be a great innovation

As to the work around

Use a Heat Map (set the Colour to a Calc Field always = 0 and set the Colour Range to Custom of White and White) - I have done this - reply if you need further assistance

Hi Ajinkya,

This may be a workable solution in the mean time. Please give this a go and let me know what you think. Thank you Mark for offering this solution!

Thanks,

Hello Mike

I would like to know if there is any solution to add dynamic text in the report.

I tried Heat map as well but it is for metrics only, my requirement is for Dimension type of objects.

Thanks

Hi - it works for Dimension Text

I cant remember off the top of my head how I did it - but we had an explicit requirement to show dynamic Text from a Dimension field - this was how I did it

I will try and find it and post some screen shots

Hi Ajinkya,

This is still not a possibility, however, I do have an update regarding this. This idea's been moved to our Backlog in our internal task. As of right now, a majority of dev focus is on version 8.0 and only critical bugs are being addressed. If this is to be implemented it would be at least a few months out.

Some further info is that the dev teams solution for this idea is that "this would be better suited to a text widget on the canvas which can pull in a piece of dimension data, rather than a chart."

That's about all for feedback on this. Sorry there's not a more immediate solution here.

Regards,

Mike

Hi Mark,

Great! I've made note of this in our internal task to aid in future consideration for developing this.
