Use a Parameter in a Visualization's Title

Add a parameter to the visualization's title when you want to display the parameter's value in the context of the title.

For example, you can create a parameter called Year and add it to a dashboard filter on the canvas. Then you can reference the parameter in a visualization's title so that when the user chooses a year value, the title is updated to include the selected year.
