Displaying a string field in a timeseries markdown widget?

I have a string field with a link that changes, and I'd like to display the latest value in a Markdown widget. I figure a "top hit" would select it, but the only fields in the dropdown are numeric fields.

Is there another way to do it, such as with Timelion? Or do I have to delve into Canvas?

Unfortunately, Time Series Visual Builder doesn't support the top_hits aggregation. That would be a great feature.
