Data point types
To have data shown in your widget you have the option to use fixed data points or dynamic data points. Dynamic data point widgets show values that can changes over time, for instance it will include the latest responses or comments, and the data can adjust when filters are applied to the dashboard. Fixed data point widgets, on the other hand, are added to the widget manually and always show the same values at all time.
When selecting fixed data points, you have to fill out the data that you want to show in the widget manually. Every type of widget has a different set of options for appearance. Below are the most common options:
Main data point: the outcome of the main objective/question.
Show symbol: when turning this option on, you can add a symbol to the main data point. For example, a %, $ or #. When doing this another option will appear in the menu, namely symbol position. Here you can choose if you want the symbol to appear in-front of the value "prefix" ($40) or after the value "suffix"(35%)
Show N (number of outputs): when turning this on, you can add the total number of inputs inside the widget. For example, the number of responses.
Decimals main data point: the number of decimals that the main data point maximum can have.
