Delta

  • 2 min to read

Gauges allow you to display the difference between the actual and target values using a special delta value and delta indicator. A delta indicator shows whether the actual value is less than or greater than the target value while a delta value represents this difference as an absolute value or a percent variation.

To customize settings that relate to the calculation and display of deltas, use the options buttons (the DataItemsArea_OptionsButton icon) displayed next to the data item container in the Gauges section.

Gauges_DeltaOptions_OptionsButton

These buttons invoke the Gauge Options dialog.

Threshold type / Threshold value

For instance, you can specify that a specific indication should display when the actual value exceeds the target value by 10% or by $2K. 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.
