Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) is a measurable value that demonstrates how effectively a company is achieving key business objectives. The indicators vary depending on the specific needs of the viewer, but they always provide information over metrics important for the organization, such as the progress towards goals and over-time trends.
Similarly to the Text Gauge, the KPI Gauge displays the Value column in a large font. However, the value in the KPI is also evaluated against the same value for a previous time period.
You can also have multiple KPI's in one visualization if you add a Category.
The KPI gauge has similar settings to the sparkline visualization, through which you can configure:
- Type: the time period you will use to compare both values.
- Show difference as: whether you will display the difference as a value, percentage, or both value and percentage.
- When difference is positive: the color for the difference indicator.
