  1. Cycle through multiple dashboards

    I would like to set up multiple dashboards, one for each project. I'd then like to cycle through these dashboards on a TV from one URL. Ideally I could set the sequence and duration for which each dashboard will be displayed.

      • update frequency should be customizable.

        Hi, I want to display a report in tabular format. I have a server that will spit the data out on demand, but that is a heavy query and would not like that to run every 30 seconds.
        It will be great if this can be customizable so that I can run the pull every hour if necessary.

        • Support for Excel for custom widgets

          Dash currently supports CSV files for custom widgets. It would be nice to be able to directly read from an Excel file, though.

          Many people have complicated spreadsheets with their source data, and then have another workbook in Dash's format with calculated cells. Every time they edit the spreadsheet they have to then export the workbook as CSV so Dash can read it.

          If Dash sees a file that ends in .xlsx it can just show a dropdown form them to choose which workbook they want to use.

                • Commuting traffic widget using Google Maps.

                  A widget showing an arbitrary map area with the traffic layer enabled. The user defines his/her area of interest, like a freeway segment or event the whole home/work route.

                  A Dashboard with weather, traffic, Twitter/email feed could be the first thing to check before leaving home.

                    • Countdown/up clocks

                      It would be cool to tap into custom countdown/up clocks such as until New Year's (or a specific date), how long the government shutdown has lasted, time until a waiver wire for fantasy sports, time until a product launch, etc.

                      • Add a stock checker widget

                        Be nice to have stock checks - is possible to get RSS for most, but would be neat to either have a graph, or track news, or such.

                            • Pull data from local LAN

                              Need the ability to install on local system so we can pull data from databases and/or show data that is already been pulled from multiple sources in one dashboard. Online data is useless to us. We want to display our company's internal information organized in a dashboard for each department.

                                  • Desktop Integration

                                    I recently created a dashboard so that people could see the progress of the game I'm developing. Unfortunately, I had to spend quite a while creating a Python script which would post statistics to GitHub, where they would then be pulled from using Dash. I then had to spend 5 hours trying to get Windows Task Scheduler to run it consistently.

                                    To save others the pain of doing this, I would recommend creating a desktop application that allows people to write Lua scripts that integrate directly with Dash and update automatically. It should have simple API calls (dash.speedometer("speedometer name", 250)…

                                      • Include instructions how to embed a dashboard into an iframe in your knowledge base

                                        Have the instructions on how to embed dashboard in an iframe easy to find in the knowledge base. Accidentally found out it how to to do it from https://www.thedash.com/news/2014-10-28-embed-dashboards after multiple failed attempts and after extensive Google search. Such a simple fix....appending /embed after the url makes a world of difference. Please include these instructions to the community.
