Creating a spot, categorical, or time KPI report

This topic discusses how you can create the following types of KPI reports:

  • Spot KPI report—Sets a KPI without displaying additional information, other than the value itself.
  • Categorical KPI report—Splits what is displayed on the tab into categories when viewed as a report. You can break up the value into categories for further examination.
  • Time KPI report—Shows a trend according to time-series data, rather than real-time trends. You can also show more details in the report (like a Categorical KPI).
