Static Serial Chart
Is it possible to insert data points the chart series directly from the Dashboard designer without having to use the Edit markup?
How could I do that? It's not clear to me.
@mihairosu unless the option presents itself in the attributes options on the right hand side, then no.
Doesn't seem like it.
When I click on the inputs "series-<x>-value" I don't get a prompt to select a data point xid.
The last time I did this, I had to do it through manual editing of the HTML content, and I was hoping it would have been improved in v4; Ideally I'd like to stick to a single way to maintain these dashboards, instead of a mix of methods.

@mihairosu I think you still have to stick to the old way
@mihairosu if you're programming savvy - it might not hurt to throw yourself together a dashboard page that stores your chart configs as json in the json_data store.
This means you can create a template dashboard page with a fixed configuration and naming conventions. Then those fields are populated via the json_data object your page pulls in. Ideal for high component re-use without the frustration of copy and pasting.
I'm not familiar with that sort of thing. Do you have any documentation on how to work with that? I don't know much about web development.
For now, I copied and pasted from the old HTML into the new one and was successful.
@mihairosu the form example they use to save to the json data store is a good example, but it depends on how many points of data you need to show on a chart at a time.
It demonstrates how you can store and recall data. I'll throw something basic together.
Ideally, the best way to make this work would be storing a complete amchart profile using the chart-options property, that way you can render the chart as desired.
I can probably throw something together as a quick reference for others to work from. It won't be anything flash
@MattFox I appreciate it. I may have a use case for that at some point, but don't sweat it, there's no rush.
At the very least, it might help others, and be something to reference if it comes up again.
