  1. Does the Reddit widget work at all for anyone?

    The Reddit widget doesn't work for me, am I doing something wrong?

      Thanks for reporting this. This is a new bug — reddit changed something on their side. Thanks for reporting this. We’ll get a fix out soon!

      • Time & date of last update

        A field that shows the date/time anything was changed.
        A variation could be the last date/time there was an update to linked data (eg Google Sheets).
        Both would help show the data is up-to-date.

          This was a great idea. We just added it to dash. You can view the last time a widget was updated by going to its configuration screen and glancing in the bottom right corner.

        • Dark Themed Dashboards

          This would be great for dashboards that are being displayed all day on a monitor. Should put less wear and tear on the monitor.

          • Set rotation in querystring

            If you want to display ur dashboard on an display mountet on the side
            and are running an unmanaged setup it would be cool to have the option to set rotation in the URL/Querystring as u can with fullscreeen

            /fullscreen/90 = 90 degree
            /fullscreen/180 = 190 degree

            • Google docs spreadsheet widgets

              A lot of our data is in Google Docs spreadsheets and we'd love to be able to see it in Dash.

                We just added this feature! You can can create a spreadsheet and show that data in a table, chart, or leaderboard. Let us know how it works for you!

              • Adjustable font sizes on Custom Table Widgets.

                Font size is much too large on csv file imports. Doesn't seem to be any way to make it smaller

                        • Fitbit widget

                          It would be cool to have widgets that pull data from your Fitbit. This would go really well with the existing Withings scale widget.

                          • support bar graphs when using the custom graph JSON

                            When building JSON to work with Status Board (which, as I understand it,
                            you guys try to be compatible with) you can specify type:bar and have it display a bar graph. An example of some JSON that works with Status Board is at http://gnuconsulting.com/test.json, generated by the script at
                            http://github.com/teancom/flareboard/. The JSON as-is doesn't work at all, complaining that the format is invalid. However, if you remove the type:bar (or pull a copy of http://gnuconsulting/test_dash.json), you can see that it displays nothing (because it's still trying to graph it as a line graph vs a bar chart).

                              Hi David -

                              I totally agree. We have an issue documented which will add support for bar charts. For now, I’m going to allow the type field, so the JSON is still valid.
