Creating an Indicator Widget

The indicator widget provides various options for displaying one or two numeric values as a number, gauge, or ticker. You can also add a color-coded indicator icon that represents the value in the widget. For example, you can add a green up arrow or a red down arrow.
To create an indicator widget:
  1. Click Dashboards tab, the Dashboards tab, and select a dashboard from the list.
  2. In the Widget library panel, click Create new widget button, the Create new widget button, to create a widget and open it in the Widget Designer.
    For more information, see Creating Widgets.
  3. In the Widget Designer, select Indicator from the list of widget types in the top-left corner.
  4. In the data panel on the left, add data to the widget:
    1. In the Value section, click Add button, the Add button, and select the primary field.
      The name and value of the primary field are displayed as the main title and main value.
    2. In the Secondary section, click Add button, the Add button, and select the secondary field.
      The name and value of the secondary field are displayed under the main field.
    3. For gauge indicators, set the minimum and maximum values that can be represented by the gauge.
      You can enter a fixed numeric value or select a numeric field with a dynamic value in the data browser.
    For indicator widgets, you can also specify whether an icon appears in the widget and select the color of the icon. For example, you can add a red arrow pointing downwards for a negative value. For more information, see Setting Conditional Coloring.
  5. In the Design tab on the right, customize the appearance of the widget:
    1. Under Indicator Type, select Numeric or Gauge.
      Note: If you reduce the height of an indicator widget, it automatically turns into a ticker widget. The appearance of the ticker widget depends on the type of the original indicator widget. Ticker widgets for numeric indicators differ from ticker widgets for gauge indicators.
    2. Configure the options available for the selected type of indicator.
      You can select a skin and specify the components that you want to include in the widget.
  6. Click Apply.
