Data Discovery: Gauges Ribbon

Gauges Tab becomes active when KPIs are present in the query. Once enabled, users can turn on gauge visualizations - which are an alternate way to view KPIs.

Changes made in this tab influence the Gauge component only (in the current report only). See Gauge for a discussion of gauge types.

General Formatting


Selects the layout pattern for gauges.


Applies a predefined gauge theme to current report. Your system administrator may add additional themes, if necessary.

NOTE: Changing the Report Theme in the Report Tab overwrites the current Gauge Theme. Therefore, it is recommended to first set the Report Theme, and then (if desired) to change the Gauge Theme.

Font Size
