Text/Parameter Replacement in dashboards (version 9)

Zack Wilson shared this idea 5 months ago

For Dashboards in version 9, is it possible to display dynamic data using the text widgets (i.e. [filter:1] )? Or is there any other way to grab data to display in the dashboard?

I was going to try to use javascript... but I don't know what holds the data.

Hi Zack,

Thanks for reaching out to support with your question.

I had my content creation wizard Justin help out with some testing, and it appears as though the dynamic widget works on the report canvas, but not the dashboard canvas-

Outside box - dashboard canvas widget

inside box - report canvas widget

So you should be able to "workaround the current behavior by using a report canvas, and dragging that report onto the dashboard.


I have a feeling this is a work in progress and hopefully will be working in a nearby upcoming version, would you like me to make sure developers are still working on this, and add you as an affected client to the dev task?

Thanks,

Eric

Eric,

I noticed the "Text Replacement" widget (that Nathan used in the Code Mode Webinar) is not in v 9.2... is there a way to get the code to add as a widget?

Hi Zack,

I touched base with Nathan about this -

So it sounds he should have something for you soon, and you are welcome to reach out to him in regards to this. Does that sound like a plan?

Thanks,

Eric

Eric,

I have not received information regarding this issue. He was working on another issue I was having and I haven't asked him about it.
