Dashboard widgets inside subflows


#1

The general question is whether ui widgets can work properly inside subflows. In particular, I want to use a ui_switch node in a subflow. Each subflow instance produces a widget in the dashboard that operates independently, but they do not appear in the order I want. The dashboard tab in the editor shows only one node, so I don't see an obvious way to re-arrange the dashboard widgets. Is there a workaround? What determines the order in which the widgets appear? Should I look for a different way to clean up my flows?

Correct - you cannot use dashboard widgets inside subflows for exactly the layout reason you identify. The sidebar that controls the layout order knows nothing about subflows so there is no current workaround.
