Advanced Gauge

For Microsoft® Power BI

The Advanced Gauge for Power BI helps us visualize a single value within a given scale as pointed by the needle on the colored data range or chart axis. This custom visual is often used in executive dashboards to show key business indicators. It is a great way to represent a metric against a scale with optional qualitative representations illustrated by colors.The custom visual helps in displaying the health of the KPI using a qualitative scale for simple understanding. It also indicates the progress towards a goal.


Conditional Formatting

Conditional formatting which helps in visual alerting and conveys the state of the KPI whether it is doing good or bad.

Number Formatting

Advanced Gauge allows the user to Set the scaling display and customize it, add separators, prefix and suffix values could be added

Axis formatting

This visual provides more customization option for axis such as reverse axis, Show/hide labels & the ticks within the axis

Actual and Target Values

The Actual & target values can be compared using customizable markers in the Advanced Gauge for Power BI

Data labels

The custom visual allows the user to customize the data labels of both primary and secondary values in the Gauge

Data & Track Colors

Color themes can be set for both actual and target values if no conditional formatting is added to the visualization
