I know the capabilities of QlikView rgd. shapes and visuals are limited if there are no specialized Addons available.
Still it should be possible, there are some possibilities.
I have the following task:
- I have a list of discrete events (damages done by forklifts) with all the details - date, area, amount etc.
- There are 2 separable areas where most of these damages occur.
=> We want to establish a kind of contest (complete with prizes and all) between these two areas:
=> For a nr. of days/ weeks with no recorded damages, a prize shall be awarded to the respective "team".
What I have been asked to do now is simply a display of these discrete events - or the days that have already passed without any or - I don't know exactly. That is my issue: I have all the data, no problem there. Up to now, however, I have limited myself to displaying data in barcharts and combocharts to keep things simple.
I also want to try and keep things simple here - and work without any addons, if possible - those have to be installed, I cannot do that myself, so I have to create a ticket for IT and it will take a while ... better to do without.
=> I have been thinking of a gauge_chart (the test-tube) that will fill up with 1,2,3,4,5 (the days of one week) and the colour could
change from green (no damages) to orange (up to 2 damages) to red.
Or/ and one could create some simple "basket" (like a box) with five balls (round text_boxes, one for every weekday) that will just
appear one by one with the corresp. background colour.
=> That could even be combined with the test_tube and five of these "balls" could be stacked within it.
The plant director had something like an hourglass in mind, with balls disappearing from the top half and appearing on the bottom as days without any damages accumulate ... I guess if I can find a picture like that online and put that into a background_text_box, that could also be done.
Any more ideas? Has anyone done something like this before?
Thanks a lot!
P.S.: I like the idea of those balls - that could even be combined with sth. like the hourglass the plant_director mentioned - I could search a picture online for a background_textbox and then put a number of those balls "inside" for every day of the week. They would "fall" one by one as the days go by and their colour could change.
Whatever - I want to collect some possibilities and assemble some proposals and ask before I set to work on this.
