Vitara offers a headline KPI number and a smaller font number to show change or past performance (for instance, for representation change from the previous quarter). This visualization is ideal for representing key figures that need to be highlighted in VI Dashboards and Documents alike.
Metrics - 3 Metrics, min 1 required. The first metrics M1 will be shown as the big number (Main label) and the second metric M2 will be shown as the smaller number (Sublabel). The third metric M3 will be used to create thresholds for background colors. Metrics can be regular or derived metrics and can be formatting as %, Fixed, Currency, etc.
Attributes - Optional Use as Filter Option - Not available
The screenshot below showcases the KPI widgets formatted with different colors of text and also using metric values formatted as currency and % respectively. By default KPI widget will show the name of the first metric (Main label) as the title of the widget, but we can modify this with our own text input in Appearance ? Text Label ? Label-text input box.
KPI widgets can be effectively combined with VitaraCharts’ Sparkline to show the trend of the key number for the executive dashboard. See the example below.
You can apply thresholds to set panel colors and icons in the KPI widget. For Simple KPI chart, in the editor panel of a dossier, apart from the ‘Top Label’ and ‘Sub Label’ drop zones, there is a third metric drop zone called ‘Threshold Metric’ which will be used specifically for applying thresholds in Simple KPI chart.
Open the property editor by clicking on the ‘Edit’ button and select the ‘Threshold’ tab. In the threshold, the editor window applies source, target, threshold condition, and other related information. In the below screenshot, for Simple KPI charts panel colors and icons are set using thresholds.
