Benchmark Chart Widget


Apps - Widget - Benchmark Chart icon.png This type of widget belongs to the Dashboards category in the widget library. It enables you to compare, for a given measure, the results of a reference dimension element with other dimension elements. The comparative analysis is performed using a horizontal bar chart. The reference dimension element Apps - Reference Value icon.png, the minimum (Min) and maximum values (Max) of all dimension elements and the average value of the other dimension elements (Avg) are placed on the quantitative scale.

Notes

   Open url.png  see General remarks on widgets

  • As a general rule, a data source contains one Dimension column and one or more Measure columns.
  • Different measures that are related to the same dimension elements can be processed simultaneously, e.g. the number of incidents in 2013 and the number of incidents in 2014 handled by the same employees.
    • Select the measures you want using the Data Transformer. If you do not do so, all of the measures will automatically be processed.
    • Each measure is represented by a bar placed in the same chart.
  • Values in the quantitative scale are automatically calculated from 0 up to the maximum value of the measure. They cannot be modified. To improve the readability of different ranges between these two limits, you can increase the width of the widget.
  • In execute mode, infotips appear when you move the mouse over each element of the chart.

Best Practice big icon.pngBest practice

  • You should use the Benchmark Chart widget to compare a reference dimension element with other dimension elements.

Example

You want to compare the results of Fred Leblanc (reference dimension element) with the results of the other employees (other dimension elements) for the number of incidents handled by the Technical Support team in 2014 (measure). The other employees are Franck Adam, the Administrator and Fabien Pachelbel.

Data source Benchmark chart widget

Note: The data source contains several measures. You select the measure you want (number of incidents in 2014) using the Data Transformer.

List of properties

Content

Reference: Value of the data source that identifies the reference element selected from the dimension elements.

DataSource

Data Source: External data source associated with the widget. 

  • The drop-down list displays all of the data sources available in the app. 
  • To modify the current data source or to view its contents, you should click Apps - Edit icon.png. The Apps - datasources Properties - Preview button.png button below the Preview property shows the number of rows (max. 15) and columns extracted.
  • To define and associate a new data source with a widget, click Apps - Add datasource icon.png in the Objects pane.
DataTransformer

Data Transformer: Used to define the structure and scope of the data source, apply statistical aggregate functions and modify the order of the measures displayed. Open url.png See the procedure.

Data

FirstRowContainsDimensionElements

First Row Contains Dimension Elements: Used to specify the structure of the data source by indicating if dimension elements are found in the first column (box is not checked: standard data source structure) or in the first row (box is checked). Note: This property does not affect the behavior of the Data Transformer.

SortByValueDescending

Sort By Value Descending: Used to sort dimension elements in descending order (if the box is checked, from highest to lowest value) or in the order in which they are read in the data source (box is not checked). Note: The order applied is determined by the dimension elements of the first measure in the data source.

Example documentation icon EN.png    You want to display the chart for incidents and requests per employee.

The data source contains the Department dimension with three elements. Sort By Value Descending - Example - Datasource.png

Box is checked Box is not checked

Sort By Value Descending - Example - Sort value - On.png

The dimension elements of each measure are sorted in descending order.

Sort By Value Descending - Example - Sort value - Off.png

The dimension elements of each measure are displayed according to the sort order of the data source.

MaximumNumberOfData

Maximum Number Of Data: Used to indicate the maximum number of dimension elements to be loaded from the data source for each measure selected in the data source. This prevents loss of performance when data volume is large. 

  • The count is always performed from the first dimension element.
  • When the number of dimension elements to be loaded is greater than the number of dimension elements in the data source, all of the data is loaded.
  • To view the current data source, click Apps - Edit icon.png next to the Data source property. Click on the button below the Preview property to see the number of measures and the number of dimension elements for each measure.
Example documentation icon EN.png    You want to display the chart for incidents and requests per employee.

The data source contains the Department dimension with three elements. Sort By Value Descending - Example - Datasource.png

  • Maximum Number Of Data = 20 (default value)
  • Maximum Number Of Displayed Data = 20 (default value)
  • Maximum Number Of Data = 2
  • Maximum Number Of Displayed Data = 20 (default value)
  • Maximum Number Of Data = 20 (default value)
  • Maximum Number Of Displayed Data = 1

Sort By Value Descending - Example - Number Data - All.png

All dimension elements are loaded and displayed for each measure, i.e. the three departments.

Sort By Value Descending - Example - Number Data - Part.png

Only the first two dimension elements are loaded and displayed for each measure, i.e. the first two departments.

Sort By Value Descending - Example - Displayed Data - Part.png

All dimension elements are loaded but only the first element is displayed. This corresponds to the Sales department. The Others dimension element groups values from the Marketing and Administration departments.

MaximumNumberOfDisplayedData

Maximum Number Of Displayed Data: Used to indicate the maximum number of dimension elements to be displayed for each measure selected in the data source. This improves chart readability.
    Example documentation icon EN.png You want to display the chart for incidents and requests per employee. Open url.png See the Maximum Number Of Data field.

  • The count is always performed from the first dimension element.
  • When the number of dimension elements to be displayed is less than the number of dimension elements to be loaded, the Others dimension element will automatically be added to the chart. It will aggregate all of the values from non-displayed dimension elements.
