Understand Gauge

A gauge is used to visualize single-valued metrics, such as revenue performance for the year-to-date or other marketing and sales goals. In other words, a gauge visually represents a goal/target and how your business metric is progressing towards that goal/target. This element is great for displaying KPIs, such as average duration of support executive’s calls, number of bugs raised, number of solved risks, etc.

For example, a gauge can be used to show the current sales progress of a team and how far the team is from the monthly target.

A gauge is also used to display your business status in a predefined range/state.

For example, a sales metric can be represented as bad, average or good sales; where bad, average and good are the ranges or states.

Below is an image that shows two gauge elements —  Sales last month  and  Sales this month , on a page in Creator. The left side i.e the portion before target (dotted line) is the  minimum  range and the right side i.e the portion after the target is the  maximum  range.

The major elements of a gauge include :
