Gauge fill to value with conditional colors

    One use case I have been asked about is fill to value gauges being conditional on a target value (in this example I have used a variable to set the target to be able to test things).

    To do this follow the steps below:

     

    Step 1 Create your gauge with your measure as normal.

    Step 2 – Set up two segments for the gauge

    • Click add limit
    • Make the first segment green
    • Set the value for the first segment as the same as your measure for the gauge (i.e. it will always be green unless we tell it otherwise)
    • Make the second segment red

    Step 3 – create a third segment

    • Click add limit
    • Make the third segment Grey
    • Enter a calculated condition in the formula for this second breakpoint

     

    1. e.g.

     

    =if([Measure formula]>=[Target Value], [Measure formula],0)

     

     

    Explanation of behavior:

     

    If the measure is >= the target then we will make this segment not show as it will be the same value as the segment boundary we created in step 1.

     

    If the measure is < the target then we will set the boundary to 0 which makes this segment overwrite the green segment from step 1.

     

     

      Once this has been done you will notice that only two segments will show at one point in time which is how we have programmed it to work. However, this does make the gauge hard to change once setup which is why these steps are important.
