Gauge charts, also known as Dial or Speedometer, are a meter-type visualization that shows the real-time status of a KPI, indicated by a gauge and needle, within a range that includes targets and actual values. Gauge/Dial/Speedometer charts include a minimum to and maximum range (such as low to high targets), along with an indicator for an ideal target.
Gauge/Dial/Speedometer charts can be used to show actual performance versus targets or progress toward a target for anything from temperature, weight and speed to percentages of sales or work completed, performance, and more.
Gauge charts are ideal for showing
- actual status in relation to targets
- progress toward a goal
- a percentage measurement
If configured by your administrator, you can visualize any trend as a Gauge chart. Simply click the gauge icon on any KPI trend view.
