Tip: If you are not yet familiar with how to build a new dashboard, see Building a dashboard.

Use the Text element to add titles or written instructions to help dashboard users.

Options

The following options are availabe from the Edit Text dialog.

Text

Use the Text tab to enter the text that you want to display in the dashlet.

Text that you enter in the Text panel will be displayed in the dashlet. You can alter the style of text elements that you enter by using the controls in the header. You can change the font, style, size and color of text, and choose whether to left-align, center-align or right-align paragraphs.

Tip: You can enter HTML into the Text panel. Click the hamburger menu, then make sure Source Edit is ticked to switch to source editing mode, and enter or paste the HTML into the text panel.

Borders

Use the Borders tab to configure the color and thickness of the dashlet border. If no settings are defined in the Borders tab, the dashboard's global border settings are applied to the dashlet.

Place Holders

You can include a Place Holder in a Text Element, to hold a field from the current data view. The value contained by the place holder will dynamically update based on where you click in your dashboard's charts.

To include a place holder in a Text Element, reference the placeholder in the text editor using the following notation:

{ placeholder number }

The placeholder number will be assigned to the placeholder after it has been built.

Simple Placeholders

Creating a simple placeholder will allow you to apply an aggregation function to a field in your Data View, much like is done when a field is dragged onto the y-axis measure of a chart dashlet.

Computed Placeholders

Creating a computed placeholder will allow you to create a computed field using one or multiple fields, functions, and operators, much like is done when creating a custom field in a chart dashlet.
