I want to be able to use the "Report Prompts" and "Section Prompts" real estate for additional objects.  

When I make dashboards, I'll put confidentiality stamps on the pages for if people print to PDF, etc.  I have to use the real estate in my view where charts are to do this currently, it would be nice to be able to put images in the areas where Report Prompts and Section Prompts are so I don't have to chew up valuable space from charts.

Thanks for your idea, @DevenSmith! We are considering this use case as we plan out and design future releases. 


To give us more context, do you have scenarios other than confidentiality where this capability would be useful?

Displaying text objects would be another key object other than images.  I sometimes put text notes on the pages, especially if I put filters on the objects to default them all to show no data and require a filter be selected.  Basically any object that isn't being used to communicate meaning thru data would be nice to put in the prompt areas.  If those spaces aren't filled, its just dead screen space that could be leveraged for other things, which is beneficial if it means I can free up screen real estate for the objects with data in them.


The one data object I will say could be useful in those areas is the "Key Value" object.  If we could have more freedom to size the text (I'm using VA 7.5) in that object it would benefit all around but also so it would fit nicely in the prompt areas to display macro level numbers without taking up space for charts below that would be very beneficial as well.

Great detail here, thanks @DevenSmith. We're passing this along to the VA Design Team as a use case to consider for future releases.
