Add text widgets to create titles and texts that stand out, and when you want to add more descriptive explanations to the dashboard and surrounding visualizations.

In the widget’s settings, you can find plenty of options for creating different text styles. Some examples of what you can do include changing the font color, selecting a background color, adding hyperlinks, and defining the text alignment.

  1. Click on the Text Widget icon in the top menu.
    A new Text Widget appears in your dashboard.
  2. Type in your text.
  3. Use the tools in the widget’s toolbar to format your text. See some examples below.
  4. When done, click outside of the widget area to save the text and formatting.
