Dynamic text is available in SAS Visual Analytics 7.4. See screenshots I took from a recent webinar

Hi Michelle, we just upgraded to 7.4 and the dynamic text object does not fulfil our needs. We need it in the chart object itself.

Whilst the chart object doesn't do this, I was thinking you could overlay a text object in the area in the chart where you want the dynamic text.

I did try that. Two things:


1. If you maximize that chart the text object does not follow. It stays in place. Our users are exporting the image and putting it PowerPoint (I know this defeats the purpose of VA. We are working on them Smiley Happy )


2. The dynamic text object will only display Parameters, Measure and the "Interactive Filter". Parameters will not work for categories because there are many individual values in one category (Instrument 1, Instrument 2, Instrument 3,  etc...). The Interactive filter option is OK but our sections have many controls that are not in the Global prompt. 


@MichelleHomes Thank you for the suggestions. I appreciate it!

Hi Joe,


It's very helpful to have your context here and a better understanding of what you've tried too. Thanks for sharing. Agree with your point with integration with AMO, it needs to be part of the chart object.


Thanks for expanding on the features request details. Will help others to vote and add their commentary too.


Kind Regards,
