I read that using filters you can only have something like ten different values in the column.

Given this limitation I was wondering is it possible to using something like R or Python to programatically create the schema of a question.

For example I would like to have anywhere from a few hundred to a thousand questions on a single dashboard - each of the questions would be a simple line graph or bar graph. (but obviously this is a lot more than ten and using dropdown filters would meet the system limitation of ten unique values and also be impractical to scroll through such a long list.

“I read that using filters you can only have something like ten different values in the column.”
Not sure what you mean here?

I would like to do something similar. I would like to programmatically create questions and attach them to dashboards.

The questions will all be relatively simple, just need to know how this can be done.

You probably want to explore the API - see WIKI: SDK (covers API, embedding etc?) for some pointers …
