BloX actions allow for a user to attach a script to be executed on a click of a button. A popular use case that has gained a lot of usage recently, has been meta data changing with BloX actions. These actions change an existing widget’s panel items, panel granularity when items are dates, filters, or general settings. In short, these actions modify an existing widget’s metadata.

Metadata Context

These are the panels that are referenced in the solutions below:
Panel 1:
Includes categories for the visualization
Panel 2:
Includes the values for the visualization
Panel 3:
Includes the column or break-by of a chart
