Key Takeaways

  • The effectiveness of gauges on dashboards is an often debated topic.
  • The Dial Gauge is completely data driven. Which means not only must your measure (drives the needle) come from a dataset but also the different thresholds ranges must come from your dataset too.
  • There are no specific Format settings for the Dial Gauge, which does limit you a bit with what you can do with this gauge.

This Dial Gauge shows sales performance.

  • Again under the Format paintbrush there are no specific settings for the Dial Gauge but you will have a set of settings that appears on every visual to adjust the background color, add a border around the visual and lock the aspect ratio.
