    We have titles in TEXT BOX at the top of many of our canvases.  We would like the title to say something like “Voucher Count for Year <”2019”>” as an example.  If the filter value changes then the text in the TEXT Box would change.

      Hi Brian,

      There currently is a feature do render this in Answers (Narrative view) but not in DV canvases (yet). Two potential workarounds that may help :

      1. in DV, use an expression filter instead of a classic filter, and just enter the text there. See the picture below. Since you are using a date object in your case, it may require that you create a text object for this just to make it readable in the filter
      2. or expose your canvas in an OAC Dashboard (Answers), Once in a dashboard, you can access various objects such as narratives but also prompts that will let you expose this information directly.
      3. another option may be to build a simple viz plugin for this, which may be quite simple to design but still requires a bit of design.

      Hope this may help in your specific case, but not sure
