I have a suggestion, when i have mutliple toggles in a dashboard, all linked to the same feed, when i use a toggle all others return to default state, is there any way you could add a functionality wherein it retains it state irrespective of other toggles?

also pls add a width functionality to the toggle widget, all the text seem to be wierdly outa frame(check attachment),

im using this for my smarthome project and its really annoying cz i cannot see which toggles are on/off cz all of em return to default state.......

Could anyone at Adafruit IO pls pls pls pls help me??????

and before u say it,.........no i cant have multiple feeds, its wayy too much clutter and also im using ifttt which doesnt allow so many feeds

At this time, we would suggest putting just ON/OFF or something else similarly small in a toggle block text section so it looks better. The title of the feed, and the title of the block (they can be different, depending on what you need) are better used as descriptors for what the feed represents. We will look into dynamically resizing text, but it's fairly low on our list as of this moment.

Also, we do have an issue filed to support state of toggle blocks in the manner you are using them, but do not have a date we can provide when we'll add the feature. Using a feed per toggle switch is currently the recommended approach. Another approach would be using Momentary Buttons, or even just text input, with either of those you could monitor the state in the stream block.

I would like it if dashboard elements (like the time series plotter and gauges) supported simple math operations to handle things like feed unit conversions.
