  2. Click to decrease the decimal place of the value or to increase the decimal place again.

  3. Confirm with Save.

    The value is displayed according to your settings.

Add a threshold

You can add a threshold to define boundaries for different regions of acceptance. You have the following options to set and visualize the threshold:

    The threshold value is displayed above the calculated metric. The color of the metric indicates whether the value is above or below the threshold. You can specify which color is used to indicate going below or above the threshold.

  • 3 regions

    The metric (877) is displayed as a green bar. A second bar below the metric bar displays the regions above, between, and below the threshold value according to the set colors. In addition, a goal (880) can be displayed by a dashed line.

Follow these steps:

  1. Click in the widget, then Threshold.

    The threshold configuration dialog opens.

  2. Select the threshold option.

  3. Specify the value and a label for the threshold. If you like, add a goal, for example to indicate a target value.
