Truncated numbers problem


Is there a way to prevent large numbers from auto truncating across losant?

Its a pain to have to try and interoperate figures like -5.324e+5 especially on dashboards or data explorer.

Only way I’ve figured out is to add “1” to the y axis format field, and even then it only sometimes works. Also there isnt any apparent solution for doing this in the data explorer.


There’s no way to do it platform-wide, but yes, you can pass your own number formatter into many of the dashboard blocks - including the time series graph and the gauge block.

Based on the data you expect to be passed into the block, you can adjust the formatting on a per-block basis using d3-format syntax.


okay thanks @Dylan_Schuster. any suggestion for fixing in the data viewer?
