Input text as user comment directly from dashboard


#1

Is there an option on the Grafana dashboard to accept comments from user?

I’m using influx DB as backend.

For example:
I’ve a dashboard with graph tracking some values. If the values improve or decrease I want to put some comments against them. The comments will be updated at a later point of time and not when the data is being uploaded. So I need an input text field on the dashboard so that I can input comment from Grafana dashboard and it gets updated in influxDB and is reflected on the graph as a tooltip or I’m even ok if it is shown in manner like what google share ticker news feed.

Hi,

You can use Grafanas support for native annotations from version v4.6 and forward.
