The KPI Status History Trend view is the same as the standard KPI Trend, but it adds background color to show status changes over time.
Use the Show Status Background icon ( ) to quickly see the historical status of a trend in full color. The trend view normally shows the status of a KPI in relation to the indicator lines historically over time, and you can see the current status of the KPI in the top right corner; but when you toggle the Status Background icon, the background colors of the chart change to highlight status over time. You can see quite easily that this trend has mostly highs and lows and never seems to hit its target.
There are so many things you can do with Trends to see data in so many ways. Here are just a few:
- Time ranges
- Export to CSV or a table
- Box zoom and gestures
- Snap-to real values
- Use multiple pen types (Step, Interpolated, Symbol, or a combo)
- User-generated Ad-hoc trends
