Dashboarding non device data


#1

Is there a way to dashboard non device data i.e data tables, 3rd party dbs, api services, etc?
Would like to try to do some simple business kpi displays similar to geckoboard or powerbi.

That would be a big sell, particularly if it means your customers could avoid having to pay for a separate service for the BI visualizations.

Either way, adding data tables as a dashboard source would be very useful

You actually can already do this! The Custom Chart block allows you to query and graph data table data, and in addition, you can reference external data source URIs in the chart JSON configuration as well.
