About Gauge Charts
Gauge Charts present data points as needles on a gauge. Each needle points to the value of the corresponding score.
In the example below, the gauge chart indicates the score a subject gave themselves in six different categories.
Below, all standard variations of the Gauge Chart are listed. In the upper-right corner of each chart, you’ll see the icon that corresponds to the graph on the Graph Type menu.
The primary difference between full gauge charts and “multi” gauge charts is that full gauge charts split multiple data sources into separate gauges, but only the “multi” gauges split the categories themselves into multiple gauges. “Multi” gauges make sure there is never more than one needle per gauge.
All examples below have the same data sources. Take note of the differences.

Scoring categories and all question types except Pick, Group and Rank are compatible with the Gauge Chart. For questions like Sliders and Matrix Tables, which have multiple statements in the same question, you are free to use all statements or individual statements.
Gauge Charts have the same Graph Options as other general graphs. Visit the linked page for more details.
