The video below show the latest version, we’ve added a brand new dual gauge module and traffic light widgets!

Automated Live Gauge Charts

Everybody already knows the gauge chart. They are so popular that couldn’t be left out from the newest Microsoft BI tool and PowerBI. These are about solutions capable of creating real time dashboards.


We have already said that there are no limits any number of gauge can be used on a dashboard.

Fully automated operation and stability are its characteristics.

Unlimited Dashboard Power – Introducing Dual Gauge Chart


There are a number of ways of showing variance to target in a dashboard.

The latest UDT version provide dual gauge chart which is simple to read and gives meaningful comparisons between plan and target or actual vs. budget.

Traffic Light Widgets


We’ve created traffic light widgets in Excel to display charts that highlight exceptional performance in your reports.

Bullet Chart Tool

The bullet chart is a special kind of chart. Our long time desire (not only ours but our user’s wish also) has come true with the introduction of this tool.

Excel default doesn’t support its use. We have by-passed this problem with some VBA tricks.

Its biggest advantage is the space-saving. An ordinary bullet chart usually can handle 3-5 zones / values, the red / yellow / green zone of the key performance indicators, and also the values of plan and actual.


Wow, how did this chart was created? It is hard to believe but the only thing has to be done is to highlight the columns containing the base data.

After this you don’t have to do anything but to click on the bullet chart icon on the ribbon.

Your chart is done! We manage all the time consuming algorithms in the background. You only have to pay attention to the dashboards.

Furthermore, we also have a good news. We let our imagination run free so you can reach the maximum marketing profit. The chart is not only able to handle three categories but a maximum of eight!

Waterfall chart

Waterfall chart is the third element of the Ultimate Dashboard Tools. The waterfall diagram is a visualization tool that is able to show various effects. It gives help to the itemized tracking of plan / actual differences. The diagram grows or decreases from a starting value due to various effects. Thus reaches final value.

This type of diagram unfortunately is only supported by Excel 2016. We have two choices. We can make it manually or we can choose automatized solution.

With the help of the Ultimate Dashboard Tools we can make waterfall charts with the push of a button also in Excel 2010 and 2013 versions.


Some of the main utilization fields of it are marketing and revealing the reasons of profit change.

Marketing and profit is changing year by year. The difference between the years can be due to several effects. We gather them into categories. Finally we portray the effects to the result caused by the changing of category values.

Quick Variance Charts

We can create the horizontal and vertical chart with a push of a button. We only need to highlight the plan and actual data rows.

After this from the ribbon the appropriate icon can be used. We reach the needed result in a blink of an eye.


It is good to know that the dynamic chart principal is in effect here too. If we change the value of one cell than the chart will change in real time.

Sales Funnel

The purchase funnel, or purchasing funnel, is a consumer focused marketing model which illustrates the theoretical customer journey towards the purchase of a product or service.

Using UDT you can create sales funnel chart under Excel 2010 and Excel 2013 too.


Tree map Chart

Finally let’s say a few words about a special type of chart! With the help of Treemap Chart Utility you can make spectacular data-visualization without programming knowledge.

On this picture we have portrayed the marketing results of an international company. The surface of the squares are proportional to the profit obtained by marketing. We have created all this from a chart containing two columns (name of the country, quantity) with a single click of a button.

We have developed the Excel dashboard add-in that you can apply arbitrary color scale for marking the minimum and maximum values. The add-in enables the use of the chart in Excel 2010 and Excel 2013 also.

Gantt chart Maker

The Gantt chart is one of the most important helping tool of Excel project management.

The userform can be seen on the picture will appear by clicking on the Gantt chart icon.
After setting some parameters the Gantt chart is instantly available.

Ultimate Dashboard Tools is fully PORTABLE!

A: NO, the client does not need to make any changes.

What are customers saying about Ultimate Dashboard Tools

As a Program Manager -and Professor at a Belgian University teaching project management – managing projects for several companies in the area of Industrial Engineering, Pharmaceutics, Automotive, Bank & Insurance and Food Industry, I started to develop my own dashboards.
One day I got in contact with UDT and I must say: from day 1, I was surprised of all the benefits you can have to build up your dashboard to visualize your data. A very easy and simple way to amaze your Board of Directors.
But this is not the only advantage. The continuous improvements we suggested towards the developers of UDT was above expectations: the support is very fast and we work in an open very receptive atmosphere. With UDT, we are going towards a new generation of using Excel and displaying your data. Not the Generation X, not the Generation Y but the Generation W. The W of WAW !
Thank you for the support and continuous collaboration together.
