Data labels in dashboard chart widget

Options

Hi - I want to be able to show the data label within the block it represents but when I try it appears above the block and feedback has been that this is confusing for reviewers - see below

How can I get the data label to appear in the block?

    Hi @RayB

    I've experienced this before. Sometimes the users get used to it and the confusion fades away over time. Other times I've removed the counts from the graph and embedded a report next to it that displays the metrics with the counts. Not ideal I know, but those are the work arounds I've done.

    I hope that helps.

    Sadly we don't have control over where the labels appear in chart widgets. They are on or off.
