Text Widget

Last updated on 27 March, 2023

You can display text or images on your dashboard with the text widget. This is particularly useful for creating to-do lists for your team, posting project or company updates (including customer logos), or displaying anything else on your dashboard you may find useful. In addition, you can add images to display on your dashboard.

When you configure a text widget, you can enter plain text directly into a text editor, and use the settings to apply paragraph styling, or add text using HTML. You can also add images.

Requirements for Configuring a Text Widget

  • The HTML needs to be valid for the widget to render the content, and this includes a string. 
  • Images must be in https and have a LogicMonitor endpoint.
