Access your Visual KPI site by entering the site URL provided by your admin. Finding your way around Visual KPI is as simple as clicking and drilling down.
No matter where you are in Visual KPI, you always return to your dashboard by clicking the Dashboard on the main menu. Your Dashboard shows your most important KPIs, and you can customize it.
Groups and Objects
Visual KPI is organized using Groups and Objects. Objects can be KPIs, Charts or Tables. You can have objects at any level, or in any group.
Groups are what you use to organize your KPIs. Think of groups like folders in Microsoft Windows. You can have as many folders as you want, and you can have folders within folders. There is no limit to the number of folders and levels of folders you can have.
Click the Groups tab ( ) in the navigation bar to see your groups.
Click any group in the group list to see subgroups, KPIs, Charts or Tables within the group.

KPIs can be found by clicking the KPIs tab ( ) in the navigation bar or by drilling down into groups. By default, KPIs are listed alphabetically.
You can change the sort order by clicking any of the headers that have the sort icon ().
By default, your KPIs appear in list view and include a variety of visualizations to let you quickly see how each KPI is performing. Click any KPI in the list to see its details.

See charts in Visual KPI by clicking the Charts tab () in the navigation bar, or by drilling down into groups. By default, charts appear in a list view, organized by chart type, but you can use filters, grouping, and sort to decide how you view charts. Click any chart in the list to open the chart in the data panel.

Use the Tables tab ( ) in the navigation bar, or drill down into groups, to see any tables in Visual KPI.

Breadcrumbs show you where you are in the group or object hierarchy as you navigate Visual KPI. You can use the breadcrumbs at each level to get back to a higher level of the hierarchy. For example, if you are viewing the KPI called Base CF in the Decatur Peaker group that lives within the Region SE group, click Decatur Peaker to return to the group and see all KPIs in that group.

You can use the full-screen icon ( ) to hide the Visual KPI navigation bar and make your KPI or list full screen. When you want to return to the normal view, click the icon again to collapse full screen ( ).
The Hide Menu icon ( ) collapses the tools menu above groups and objects.
