Summary Number and Summary Change

Summary Number visualization

Use the Summary Number visualization to highlight a large number that is important in a project. This visualization behaves in the following ways:

  • Selects the total of the column if no cell is selected.
  • If a single cell is selected, it shows the summary for that cell.
  • If more than one cell is selected, it shows the first cell selected.
  • If the column is selected, it picks the first cell value in the column.

Summary Change visualization

Use the Summary Change visualization to show the delta (change) between two numbers. The green and red color of the Summary Change can be controlled through custom event polarity or a calculated metric’s Show Upward Trend As option.

This visualization behaves in the following ways:

  • If no cell is selected, it compares the first two cell values in the column.
  • If one cell is selected, it shows 0, because it compares the cell value to itself.
  • If two cells are selected, the first selected cell is taken as numerator and the second as denominator.
  • If more than two cells are selected, it only considers the first two for comparison.
  • If a range of cells is selected, it compares the first to the last cells selected in the range.
  • If the column is selected, it compares the first value to itself, which shows a change of 0.
