Current dashboard blocks don't match guides

by amhoff93010 on Wed Dec 02, 2020 6:52 pm

The guide "Adafruit IO Basics: Dashboards Adding Blocks" and specifically the toggle button, descriptions do not match the current user interface.

The older interface (about 9 months ago) for a toggle box allowed for adding a toggle block, that included both button text for on and off, as well as a text values sent on the feed. This no longer appears possible.

Are there guides that match the new methods of creating dashboards? Did I miss the announcement?

We haven't had time to update all of our guides.

Most of the actual flow should be quite similar though. Creating blocks largely didn't change, it was just cleaned up and tuned a bit.
