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 SSAS KPIs in BI Office and Custom KPIs in BI Office.

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.

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.

When displaying multiple gauges, use the Layout command to control how many gauges will be included in each row.

In this example, we select 2 squares in order to display 2 gauges per row.


In this example, we select 3 squares in order to display 3 gauges per row.
