Vizlib KPI Designer Properties - Layers - Bulletchart

The Bulletchart layer is a powerful visual add-on to any KPI as it nicely captures targets vs current performance. This article contains details of the settings specific to the bulletchart layer. You can find more information on the shared settings for layers here   



Bullet charts compare a single, primary measure (e.g. current year-to-date revenue), to one or more other measures (e.g. a target), and display it according to ranges of performance (e.g. poor, satisfactory, and good). Bullet charts use only one data series, but a dashboard may contain several bullet charts at the same time. The example here shows the actual and target values measures against poor, acceptable and good performance areas.
