Delta

  • 2 min to read

Cards allow you to visualize the difference between the actual and target values using special delta values and a delta indicator. If the default layout is used (Stretched layout type), the card displays the following delta values/elements:

Card_StretchedLayout_OnlyDeltaElements

  • Delta Indicator - Indicates whether the actual value is less or greater than the target value.
  • Percent Variation and Absolute Variation - delta values that show a difference between the actual and target value. You can also display the Percent of Target value. To do this, customize the card's layout.

To customize settings that relate to the calculation and display of delta values/elements, use the Options button (the DataItemsArea_OptionsButton icon) displayed next to the data item container in the Cards section.

Cards_DeltaOptions_OptionsButton

In the invoked Card Settings dialog, go to the Delta Options tab:

CardSettings_DeltaOptionsTab

Then, specify the following settings:

Use the Threshold type combo box to select whether you wish to specify the comparison tolerance in percentage values or absolute values. Then use the Threshold value box to specify the comparison tolerance.
