About Number Chart Widgets

The Number Chart widget displays a single numerical value. This value is based on a single metric, which can be the Count (number of responses) or can be based on a field from your dataset.

Example of a number chart in a dashboard. It looks like a massive number

Qtip: If you have multiple sources mapped, all source data will be displayed in the widget together. You will need to use a widget-level filter to ensure only one data source is displayed at a time. You can even lock this filter, if you don’t want dashboard users to adjust it.

Field Type Compatibility

The Number Chart uses metrics to pull in values. However, if you are choosing a metric other than Count, you will be required to choose a field for the metric. Only categories and fields with the following types will be available when selecting a field for these metrics:

  • Number Set
  • Numeric Value

Widget Customization

For basic widget instructions and customization, visit the Widgets Overview support page. Continue reading for widget-specific customization.

Basic Setup

To set up a Number Chart widget, you will be required to add a metric. If you choose a metric other than Count, you will be required to choose a field for the metric. The field specifies the where the value of the number displayed in the widget is being pulled from. You can select Options to choose to display the metric in a Number, Percent, or Currency format, as well as specify the number of decimal places you would like to display.

Your available metrics include:

  • Count: Display response counts from the selected fields (i.e., number of respondents choosing a value in a five-point scale)
  • Average: Exhibit the average value for a selected field.
  • Minimum: Show the minimum value of a selected field.
  • Maximum: Present the maximum value for a selected field.
  • Sum: Pull in the sum of all values for a selected field.
  • Net Promoter Score: Identify the Detractors, Passives, and Promoters from NPS questions.
  • Correlation: Input Pearson’s r value for the correlation between two fields.
  • Top Box / Bottom Box: Display the percentage of responses that fall into a specified range of values.
  • Benchmarks: Any benchmarks you’ve created.

Certain metrics, such as Average, require a field from the data set. Only fields with the following field types will be available when selecting a field for these metrics:

  • Numeric Value
  • Number Set

 

Show Change Since

Editing mode, so you can see the widget editing pane on the right of the number chart

Checking the box next to Show Change Since allows you to display how the displayed numerical value has changed over a particular time period. The options for the Time Frame are:

  • Yesterday
  • 1 week ago
  • 1 month ago
  • 3 months ago
  • 12 months ago
  • Month to date
  • Quarter to date
  • Year to date
Qtip: Show Change Since is a rolling calculation because the included data is relative to the current date. For example, let’s say you configure the widget to Show Change Since 1 week ago. If you look at the widget on January 8, the displayed numerical value will show you how the data has changed since January 1. If you then look at the widget on January 31, the displayed numerical value will show you how the data has changed since January 24.
Attention: Choosing Yesterday as the time frame will show changes since midnight, not all changes from the past 24 hours.

Under Date Field, select a date field from your data set that you would like to use to base the selected time period on.

Under Trend Colors, you’ll see the colors the arrow changes to in order to indicate an increase or a decrease. You can switch the colors by selecting Reverse trend colors. You cannot select custom colors.

Qtip: If there are page/widget filters for Date, for the Show change since option, you should select the same Date field that the filter uses.

The values for this widget are calculated in the following manner:

  • Current Value: Central, largest number. The chosen metric, filtered according to any filters applied at the page or widget level.
  • Previous Value: Smaller, subscript number. The chosen metric, filtered according to any filters applied at the page or widget level, with the date range offset by the amount of time you select under “Show change since.”
