I have users that are using dashboards created in Splunk. Because Splunk will begin displaying results right away in the panels of the dashboard, the user's are taking the results before the searches in the panels finish. I know there is the blue bar at the top of each panel that provides the status of the search but the user's complain that it is too hard to see. Is there anyway that I can display a message that maybe says "running" and when the searches complete it says "completed"?
I would even accept a way for the panel to wait to display the result until the search is complete.
Here is an example of how to monitor these events and display text before showing the results when the search completes. You can replicate this pattern for other panels/charts/tables. Just remember to use unique tokens names (i.e., you can only use the identifier "search_msg" once).
