Adding notes to a chart

Similar with Google Analytics, it would be very useful to be able to add notes to a chart. We can annotate campaigns and anomolies and data merging points etc.

    Please provide an update on this highly requested feature.


  • We will add the votes from this idea to the original here

  • There are many times I either will either forget to write my version notes while saving, or even worse - find out an unintended side effect of a change after I've saved and exited from editing the dataflow.

    As opposed to opening, resaving (with no changes) to add sufficient annotation, I'd love to just be able to edit the notes after the fact. This could enable more collaboration on leaving notes about the versions too since a change to one dataflow could impact datasets owned by separate people, or just have an unintended side effect that is important to note.

  • Any updates on this?  This seems like it should be a core item, being able to call-out specific historical events.

  • Thanks @Gavatar


    This is welcomed news!!!! Let me know when we have it in Beta so I can update the status to implemented.

  • Any information on how this will work with PDPs?  The notes I want to put on the card I'd only want for certain permissions.  Glad to see this being implemented, the sample looks really good.

  • hi is there any update on when this will be rolled out? it would solve a lot of problems! thanks
