    A blue border appears around the widget and the Inspector panel opens on the right.
  2. In the Inspector panel, do any of the following:
    • Click Auto to revert to the default from a custom title. The default title is dependent on the metadata the chart is configured to display.
    • Click Custom to display a custom title for the widget. Then click in the text field below the button to type a new title.
    • Change the chart’s metadata display settings.The different display settings are described in the following table.

      • Click Custom Time Range. Configure another range by typing a number and selecting one of the following: months, days, hours, or minutes. The actual data set is restricted by the data available in the Web Indexer. If the time range selected is greater than the data set, the time range text shown on the widget turns orange.

      If you previously set a custom time range in the Dashboard Time Range Filter, you must click Use TopX Widget’s Settings for the new widget settings to take effect.

      Metadata:"term" where Metadata is one of the fields listed in the "Lucene Search Syntax" columns of the Metadata Fields. For more information, see Lucene Search Syntax.

      EXAMPLE "Where" clauses:
