Element Types



Text UI elements allow you to add titles and captions to your workbook pages. You can choose the size, style, and font. The text can include dynamic content from formulas. For more information see Text Elements.


Add an image to your workbook page by uploading or referencing a URL. Go to images settings to change how images fit within the dashboard container. You can reference control variables within the image embed URL to customize images on a per-dashboard basis.


A button directs users to an external website URL or a different Sigma page. You can choose whether the link opens in a new browser tab, and you can optionally add control values. There are also customization options for button title and style.


A Horizontal divider visually partition elements or groups of elements on a page.


A spacer creates empty visual space on the page canvas, pushing elements up, down, to the left, or to the right.

Embed Element

An embed element adds a webpage, video, or other Sigma workbook to a page. Any iFrame-enabled URL can be embedded. Use control variables within your embed URL to customize what content is displayed according to different inputs.
