Key Takeaways

  • A convenient way to display a set of frequently changing metrics.
  • It includes a trend indicator that allows you to see increases and decreases at a glance.


This example KPI Ticker shows rotating stock price changes.

Under the Format paintbrush you will find there are a few settings you may desire to change to influence the appearance of this visual.

  • Under the Configuration section you can change the number of KPI values that are shown at once. You can also change the size and color of the visual.


  • Using the Indicators section you can adjust the colors that are displayed on the trend indicators. By default a value of –1 would return a red indicator, a value of 1 would return a green indicator, and a value of 0 would return a blue indicator. Each of these colors can be changed here.


You can also adjust the background color, add a border around the visual and lock the aspect ratio under the Format section.
