Group Maps are advanced heat maps and focus on alert conditions within a group. They show the KPIs within a group and highlight those KPIs that have changed recently, based on a configurable time limit. Group maps are a hybrid of the KPI Map and your Visual KPI alerts; they add visual context.
In the Visual KPI Group Map, you can quickly see if any KPIs in the group are in alert condition. The bar across the top of a Group Map indicates the status of any KPI that is in the greatest state of alert. This way, you can quickly see if there is a KPI in alert status, or if all of your KPIs are on target.
To view a Group Map, click the Group Map icon ( ) in the toolbar.
Select and click any KPI in the Group Map to display details of the KPI above the Group Map. For example, if you see a KPI in alert, you can click to get more details.
Click again to return the selected KPI to the Group Map.
Or click the Trend icon () to see the full trend details. You can also just click on the selected KPI to open the trend view.
Use filters (), or any of the trend icons in the toolbar, to adjust the trend view.
Note: Group Maps may be a visualization option, if configured by your admin. The status bar at the top of a Group Map will only display the status of any worst-case KPI if the Alert field is set to TRUE in Visual KPI Designer.
