Editing of KPI Gauges
By David Novick, Pyramid Analytics Technical Writer
This blog describes how to edit KPI gauges within BI Office. These instructions apply to both types of KPIs:
To edit a KPI gauge, click the Gauges tab in the Data Discovery tool.
NOTE: The Gauges tab becomes active after you assign the “Gauge” option to one of your report panels.
The General Formatting commands apply to the entire gauge, as described below.
The various gauge elements are presented below.
NOTE: For SSAS KPIs, the small red circle denotes the trend value.
Formatting of Gauge Text
To format the gauge text, use the three sections highlighted below:
- Status (shown in blue)
- Title (shown in orange)
- Value/Target (shown in purple)
Use the Shape command to determine whether a KPI gauge will be outlined with a square or a rectangle, as shown in the example below.
Multi Gauge Layout (Auto Trellising)
When displaying multiple gauges, use the Layout command to control how many gauges will be included in each row.
Example (Auto Trellising=2)
In this example, we select 2 squares in order to display 2 gauges per row.
Example (Auto Trellising=3)
In this example, we select 3 squares in order to display 3 gauges per row.
