Wallboard Agile Gadget vs. Actual Agile Board

I created a wallboard on a dashboard for one of our scrum projects, and I had expected it would behave identical to the actual agile board. In other words, I expected it to allow me to drag the task from one status to the next. It didn't. Instead, I just ended up highlighting some text in the task name. Am I doing something wrong? Or is the widget just for viewing and not modifying the task board?

Here's a screenshot of my attempt to drag the widget task to the next status.

The wallboard gadgets are read-only. The idead behind them was to set up a wallboard (ie. TV, Monitor, etc) in the breakroom, conference room, or other areas of the office to give project visibility. They aren't interactive like the full blown Agile Work board.

Appreciate that these are read only but then I wish there was a way to quickly link my team to the actual board so they can enjoy the full benefits. We use the wallboard as a status tracker, its on everyones default dashboard and its annoying to have to go find the board separate from the data that is being presented right in front of you…

I can't found this wallboard gadget in my JIRA 6.4.3 instance. How can I install it?
