UDT – Frequently Asked Questions

What is the add-in? How to install it?

Add-ins provide powerful optional features for Excel. Add-ins are not immediately available in Excel by default, so you must install them in 1 minute. It’s a straightforward process.

Administrator rights to install our add-ins DOES NOT REQUIRE.

Sharing the Dashboard – Should I install the add-in on multiple PCs?

UDT is fully portable. You can share your work with colleagues or with your boss. If you have an installed add-in, you can do what you want (create, modify, etc.)

You can view the dashboard easily if the add-in is not installed on the PC. You can also modify the actual values, which will reflect the chart. However, you cannot create/remove zones for gauges without the add-in.

Charts and custom data visualizations: Dynamic or static?

We can categorize visualizations into two groups: dynamic and static. Let’s clarify the difference between these two types. A dynamic chart automatically updates when a value changes. A static visualization needs to be regenerated, typically taking about 1 second.

Dynamic Charts:

  1. Gauge Chart
  2. Dual Gauge Chart
  3. Traffic Light
  4. Radial Bar Chart
  5. Sales Funnel
  6. Polar Area Chart (Windrose)
  7. Cycle Plot
  8. Ring Chart
  9. Bullet Graph
  10. Score Meter
  11. Variance Charts (8-types)
  12. Waterfall Charts (normal and rotated)
  13. Mekko Chart (Type 1)
  14. Gannt Chart

Static visualizations:

  1. Sankey Diagram (shape-based complex data visualization)
