Create a Gauge Visualization

Easily display and compare one or more key metrics on a scale using thresholds with a Gauge visualization. Gauges provide quick readouts, like the dashboard of a car. Check out this example of a dossier that contains a gauge visualization.

Check out the video below to learn more!

  1. Open a dossier.
  2. In the top toolbar, click Insert Visualization .
  3. Choose KPI > Gauge.
  4. Add a minimum of at least one metric. If the data is available in the Datasets panel, add the relevant metrics to each drop zone. Otherwise, start with your metric and use the Format panel to add reference lines and to set the minimum and maximum values, as needed.
  5. Control the look and feel by choosing between round or square edges, displaying a needle, and matching the colors to your design. You can also control the axis range using metrics on the visualization or constant values. Add reference lines and control their display.

  6. Add bands to color different thresholds.

    To use Color By All Bands, the needle must be turned on so the current value is visually represented.
