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.
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 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.
