Grafana - Single Stat displaying just a string


I am using grafana with InfluxDB. One of the measurements I am adding to influxdb is just a string… example

“The server has not been checked for 15 minutes” or “Server has been checked recently”

I am trying to make a panel that all it does is display the latest string in that measurement “server walkthrough status”… I have tried the most obvious solutions but I cant seem to get the panel to display the string and no one else seems to have had this exact problem

Switch to table query and select the last value, then in the options tab select the column you want to show
