Dynamic Parameters for GPS History Block

It seems it is not possible to supply dynamic GPS history data to the GPS History Block.

I need to enable users to do a search for the GPS location of a asset using 1. Asset name, 2. Start date and 3. End date. Then I need to pass these parameters dynamically to the GPS History Block to retrieve the data and plot the asset locations.

I do not see how this can be implemented in the current GPS History Block. I only see fixed time epochs in the block and no template-able fields to dynamically input the duration.

What am I missing?

Hi @St_Iyke_Ndubuisi,

Unfortunately, this functionality is not currently feasible within dashboards, and would likely require a custom Experience with Custom HTML Blocks. Data is currently bucketed on dashboards into set duration and resolution periods (5 minutes, 24 hours, 30 days, etc.), and thus specifying a specific a start and end date would not be supported within dashboards as they currently exist.

Though searching for an asset is not supported by the GPS History Block, I would recommend looking into context variables, which can provide you more control over the devices and data visible to a user.

I will also be creating some Feature Requests from your use case to make this more feasible in the future. I will follow up with more information should they be selected for development!

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Thanks so much!
