Using Quick Functions
- Click , the Dashboards tab, and select a dashboard from the list.
- Create or edit a widget in the Widget Designer.
- In the data panel on the left, click , the Options button, next to a numeric field.
- Select Quick Functions and the function that you want to apply.
For example, you can use a quick function if you are reviewing the total number of printed sheets per month but also want to see the accumulated annual value. You can simply use a quick function to calculate the year-to-date total for printed sheets.
You can also apply quick functions to a saved formula. For example, to compare the year-to-date number of printed sheets to the same period from the previous year, you can first apply the year-to-date function to the total number of printed sheets and save the formula. Then, you can add the saved year-to-date formula and apply another quick function for past values to perform the same calculation on data from the previous year.
