Dashboard Elements

In addition to charts, you can add other elements to your dashboard to enhance it: links, text elements, rules to divide sections, and more.


Click Add Text from the dashboard sidebar menu to add a text element to the dashboard. A modal will pop up for you to input your text and customize your text settings.

You can enable the Markdown toggle to use Markdown within the text settings. The supported markdown syntax are listed below:

Supported markdown syntax

Phrase emphasis

*italic* and **bold**
_also italics_ and __also bold__
[link text](https://chartio.com)
Or <https://chartio.com>


Markdown supports two styles of headers, Setext and atx.

Setext-style headers are “underlined” using equal signs (for first-level headers) and dashes (for second-level headers). For example:

This is an H1

This is an H2

Any number of underlining =’s or -’s will work.

Atx-style headers use 1-6 hash characters at the start of the line, corresponding to header levels 1-6. For example:

# Heading 1
## Heading 2
### Heading 3
#### Heading 4
##### Heading 5
###### Heading 6



Ordered lists use numbers followed by periods:

An ordered list:

 1. first
 2. second
 3. third

Unordered lists use asterisks, pluses, and hyphens — interchangably — as list markers:

An unordered list:

 * first
 * second
 * third
 * fourth

Code spans

Code spans are delimited by backticks.

system.out.println("markdown is cool");
// random code


> Email-style angle brackets are used for quote blocks.
>> You can also nest them.
>> You can also *nest* and **format** inside a quote block
> To break the nested blockquote, add a space between lines.
>Markdown allows you to be lazy and only put the > before the first line of a hard-wrapped paragraph

Add another line to resume regular paragraph text.
