Add Text Blocks to New Dashboards

The new dashboards are working great for us, but I have received feedback that it would be beneficial to have simple text block widgets to add more descriptive text within the dashboard rows and columns.

Hey, Katie! It's something we are planning to do relatively soon. How would you use those text blocks primarily? Section headers/titles, descriptions for the content in widgets, or anything else?

We would use them in a multitude of ways. Primarily it would be the headers to break up the sections, but also to add helper text or additional information to project dashboards such as the definitions of statuses.

I was just about to ask for the same and found this post - thanks Katie. 

Vladimir, we would use text blocks to provide titles and descriptions or annotations to explain information for viewers who don't need all the deep details, but might need some context or explanation.

Vladimir Bugay Lisa Do you have any updates of when we can expect to have Text Blocks added to the New Dashboards?

It would also be super helpful to be able to create a Table of Contents for bigger Dashboards with anchor links to specific sections.

Katie, we are planning enhancements in that area in H1, but when it comes to navigation through bigger dashboards, something else is coming during the springtime. I guess you want to use text widgets to break down bigger dashboards into sections and organize navigation across them. We'll do something better :)

Going to "third" all of this :) It would be wonderful to be able to create distinction between sections. For example.  I created a dashboard for a client that displays both "Tasks" and "Project" information. The Tasks are broken down into current, next and previous/overdue  sprint items with varying degrees of detail. Under those items, I have project specific milestones, deliverables and under that I have a running tally of 2024 stats. It would be nice to be able to create some clear visual distinction between the sprint items, the project specific items and the overarching 2024 stats.

All, as I mentioned above, we're coming up with a dedicated solution for sections pretty soon.
