By default, smart text shows the relative time a dataset was updated. For example, Dataset A was updated: 7 Hours Ago. Is there a way to display the exact timestamp instead of the time elapsed since the dataset update?

    As you mentioned, the only default way to show the data last updated in smart text is to show "7 hours ago" for example. You could show the day and time a dataset last updated using a single value card on the top of a dashboard. You can get the exact time the dataset last updated in the Domostats "Datasets" dataset.

    If I solved your problem, please select "yes" above
