I'm relatively new to Dashboard and I am trying to use some hosted Feature Services from my ArcGIS Online for Organizations account and for some reason when I am wanting to add a widget, I do not see any of my data types that are double or long integer. Does Dashboard only support short integer data types?

Jarom,

Dashboard should be showing all of your fields.  Is it a specific widget?  Pictured here is the feature details widget and I see all of the Fields.

Hello Mark, yes I am referring to specific widgets such as the bar or pie chart widgets. I have double and long integer fields but I do not see them but when I add a short integer field, I see it. Why would the widgets not honor any type of number field?

It could be subtype.   The Pie chart widget for example does not show fields that are defined as subtypes.

You can check this in dashboard by defining a Query Definition in the Map Widget settings.

Dashboard will also consider the field used to symbolize the feature service a subtype if you used a unique value renderer in ArcMap and then published the service from ArcMap.

So in the above instance when trying to create a pie chart in Dashboard the Float field will not be available, as the service has tagged it as being a "subtype".
