Adding custom text & footnotes to dashboards

There are many instances that custom text (like logo or instructions) need to be added to a dashboard to provide context or guide the end-user.

Arcadia provide two visual types to add such custom text & logos - both require certain RBAC privileges on the system , specifically “manage custom styles”.

  • Custom Extension - provides ability to create HTML / CSS

  • Rich Text - provides WYSIWYG html editor with out of the box options


Example Rich Text Editor

Example Custom Extension

Sample code

.iris-example {
  overflow: auto;
.iris-example img {
  padding:20px 10px 10px 10px;
.iris-example ul {
  padding: 0 0 5px 0;
.iris-example li {
  margin:2px 0;

<div class="iris-example">
  <img src="" alt="Iris">

  <div style="display:inline-block;width:60%">
    <p style="font-size:18px;">Iris flower data set</p>
      It is sometimes called Anderson's Iris data set because Edgar Anderson collected the data to quantify the morphologic variation of Iris flowers of three related species.
      The data set consists of 50 samples from each of three species of Iris:
    <ul class="flower-list">
      <li>Iris setosa</li>
      <li>Iris virginica</li>
      <li>Iris versicolor</li>
      <strong> Click on the scatter plot on the left to see images for that particular species below </strong>

Is there a way we can combine dynamic “Value” as a result from query and fix text together.

For example, using in executive summary e.g. X% Gross margin from Department A (where bold is coming from SQL query).

Currently we use “KPI” and Rich text, 2 boxes placing next to each other :slight_smile:
Any better way, please advise.
Thank you very much.

@Stima_Livingpresent have you looked at using the label shelf? you can use that to display dimensional values as show below:

You can even write custom expressions like this:

    concat ( 'Total sales from region - ' , max([Region]))
