Add status indicators to widgets

Status indicators allow you to call attention to a widget on your dashboard when it's performing above and below expectations. You can add status indicators to most number widgets and all Geck-o-meters.

Status indicators for number widgets

Adding a Warning when the value displayed on your number widget is above or below a certain number will cause your widget to turn red when this occurs.

Setting a value for Success when the value is above or below a certain number will instead cause your widget text to turn green when this is met.Number visualization in celebratory mode

Note

Any less than/more than goals you’ve set up in the past have become status indicators.

If you'd like to see progress towards a particular value, you can instead add a goal. You will then see this along the bottom of the widget – great if you need to motivate your team!

To add status indicators to a number widget, follow these steps:

  1. Hover your mouse pointer over the dashboard number widget you want to add a status indicator to.
  2. Click the more options icon in the top right corner.Number Widget Options
  3. Click Add status indicators.
  4. In the Add status indicators window, add figures that will trigger a Warning state, Success state, or both depending on whether the number displayed on your widget climbs above or falls below.Add status indicators

    Adding a status indicator will overwrite the goals you have set for this widget.
