Data Types (Custom Formats) in Charts and Tables

I have created a dashboard that contains a couple of tables and a few charts. What’s the best way to “retain” the column’s data type?

For example, I have a chart where the yAxes is supposed to show how much has been spent over a certain period. I would like for the ticks to include a dollar sign before each value. I found the following for chartjs but no luck,

options: {
        scales: {
            yAxes: [{
                ticks: {
                    // Include a dollar sign in the ticks
                    callback: function(value, index, values) {
                        return `$` + value;

Additionally, how do you create custom formats for a table that was created using SQL queries?

We don’t have a way of formatting tick labels right now. I’ll add something to the backlog.

For the table, are you looking for custom cell rendering?

Although that example shows buttons, you could format the cell however you want.

Thank you, I’m looking forward to using the ticks.

That’s exactly what I needed. Thank you again.
