Dashboard Chart Formatting

edited 12/09/19 in Smartsheet Basics

We are creating a dashboard and every time we re-select the Chart source data, the formatting of the chart reverts back.  Why do we have to reformat every time?

    Hi Tricia,

    As you've found, the chart widget will revert back to default settings if a new data set is selected. There currently isn't a way to prevent this behavior from happening when working with the chart widget.

    When you have a moment, submit a Product Enhancement Request to let our Product team know that you'd like to see your settings preserved when a new data set is selected in the charts widget.
