Zoho Analytics offers a widget-based model for adding single numbered widgets and chart type widgets within dashboards. These are called KPI Widgets.
Zoho Analytics offers 2 types of KPI widgets
Single number widgets are used to display a single numeric value in a formatted text. They are useful to highlight key metrics in a dashboard. The key metric can also be accompanied by comparison indicators to highlight the trend. Zoho Analytics currently offers 6 types of single number widgets with or without comparison indicators.
The below presentation shows how to create single numeric Widgets.
The chart type widgets of Zoho Analytics enables you to highlight your data metric using chart visuals. These are different from the actual charts and are focused on displaying a single value. Currently, Zoho Analytics supports three types of Chart Widgets.
A Bullet chart is best suited to highlight a metric and compare it with a target value. You can also specify qualitative ranges of performance, such as poor, satisfactory, and good. The qualitative ranges are displayed as varying intensities of a single hue.
A Bullet widget in Zoho Analytics looks as shown below. The red arrows in the image highlight the various components of the bullet chart.
The Dial chart is used to indicate the current value of a metric in a given range. Although similar to a Bullet Chart, it displays values in the form of a dial. You can also specify qualitative ranges of performance, such as poor, satisfactory, and good. A typical Dial chart consists of a Value, Target, Range and a Needle.
Shown below is a sample Dial Chart. The red arrows in the image highlight the various components of the dial chart.
Full Dial Chart is a gauge chart with full ring. This is similar to Dial Chart. The Maximum Range value will be set as the value of the full ring.
Shown below is a sample Full Dial Chart. The red arrows in the image highlight the various components of the full dial chart.
