Adding Inputs to Dashboards
You can use inputs to dynamically change what content is rendered on your Dashboard. This is useful for teams, where one member may wish to give another control of what data is displayed, or for individuals working with time series date.

Adding a text input to your dashboard

You can add a text input to your dashboard by selecting Add and then choosing Text input. The text input allows you to display text from a user typing text, or from another dashboard component.
In Settings, configure the following values:
  • Placeholder: the placeholder value for the text
  • Default value: the default value for the text
  • How is this value set? Choose to set the value based on a user's input, or derive it from another dashboard component.
  • When this input changes... set chart behaviors that occur when this input changes. For example, you can execute a script when a user changes the text in the input.
The Advanced settings allow you to also set a tooltip on hover for this element.

Adding a date picker to your dashboard

You can add a date picker to your dashboard by selecting Add and then choosing Date picker. The date picker allows you to choose date ranges that limit which data is shown on other chart or table elements.
In Settings, configure the following values:
  • Set default date: the default date for the date picker
  • Date format: the format of the date displayed
  • When this date picker changes... set chart behaviors that occur when this date picker changes. For example, you can execute a script when a user changes the date in the input, or refresh a dashboard.
The Advanced settings allow you to also set a tooltip on hover for this element.
