First, I need to drag the Radial Gauge widget from the “Deviation” section of the widget menu to my dashboard. Then, I am going to resize the widget by dragging its edges so that it will be easy to read.
I know that Radial Gauge widget allows me to quickly and easily compare certain pieces of data with the percentage efficiency for my value and goal.
Thus, in this widget, I would like to know the percentage difference of Current Month and Previous Month Expense for my product sales. This will allow me to see how much money I have spent for each product in previous and current month.
To assign data to my widget, I need to click the “Settings” button in the upper right corner of my widget. Then, I will click the “Assign Data” tab.
I immediately see two columns. In the left column, I can select different fields called “Measures” and “Dimensions.” I can drag these fields to the “Actual Value,” “Target Value,” and “Series” boxes in the right column.
I want to compare the Current Month and Previous Month expenses of each product. To do this, I need to drag the “Previous Month Expense” field to the “Actual Value” box and the “Current Month Expense” field to the “Target Value” box and “Product Name” field to the “Series” box.
