Meerkat supports various element types, some sourced from the Icinga API backend, and others static.
Icinga type elements can select from the following sources: Hosts, Services, Host Groups, Service Groups, Host Filter, Service Filter and All Services on a Host.
These sources are largely self-explanatory, however the filter language for the Filter sources is a little unintuitive. The base doco is here: https://icinga.com/docs/icinga2/latest/doc/12-icinga2-api/#advanced-filters and some hints are provided in the input dialog. You can also set a Linking URL for these elements which let you link to somewhere else, like another dashboard, or Icingaweb.

#### Icinga Card
A simple rectangular card that displays the status of the check. You can adjust the font size. Cards also support performance data, and you can pick the type of perfdata you want to display and the card will display the value. For example, pick "packetloss" and the value will be displayed in percentage (30%).

#### Icinga SVG
You can select an SVG to toggle between for the various states. The default SVGs are sensible, however feel free to choose whatever makes sense to you. The colour of the SVG changes to reflect the state.
#### Icinga Image
Select a set of images you want to toggle between on state change.
