How can I add a picture to my Sights.  Your sample below appears to allow this function, but I cannot figure it out.

    Chuck - In the current release of Sights that only way to get a picture to appear is to insert an image into a cell and then have that cell displayed in a report.  The image will then appear as part of the report as in the above example.  This is not the most elegant solution so their are improvements on the way.  On April 12th we will release an update so that you can use the Metric widget to link to a cell with an image.  See example below.  Soon we will also have an image widget that will allow you to upload an image directly to the widget without having to first place the image in a cell.

    As an FYI to anyone else looking at this. I created a report to pull in a picture I have in a cell on a client Sheet. Removed all columns and hid the primary column.  Resized the image in the report (this is a must) and then added a report widget to show the image on my Sight dashboard.  As Scott mentioned, this is not an elegant, but it is a workaraound.  Outside of the example below, I will just wait until the update to do this on a mass scale.  Since each dashboard would have a different picture (of another dashboard), I would have to create 90 reports of 1 picture for each dashboard. 

     

    Thanks again Scott, at least now I can show the team, what it will look like once we are able to add pictures via a widget.
