Text/Parameter Replacement in dashboards (version 9)

Zack Wilson shared this idea 20 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

I've gone ahead and created a developer task to look into this specific behavior. Updates to the task will be provided here as they are available. I will in turn mark this ticket as Idea Logged for now; feel welcome to reply here with any related inquiries.

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.

Hi Eric,


Is there any update on this?

Can we use text replacement on Present?

Hi Lebo,

This is currently in the backlog as there is a workaround at the report level and possibly code mode, however I can add you as an affected client if you'd like, and you can also "like" and subscribe to this post for increased visibility.

Thanks,

Eric
