Conditional Formatting a Guage visual

Hi all,

 

I have a table that looks like this:

DateProcessed CountCreated Count
01/01/19100150
01/02/1990120
01/03/1911580
01/04/1985100
01/05/199590

 

I would like to visualize a KPI that measures whether we're on target. The target would be defined as the Average of Created Count. I would like the visualization to conditionally format so that if we're falling behind by >80% it's red. If we're within 80% and 95% then yellow and if we're greater than 95% then green.

 

My first thought was that a Guage would work. However, I was not able to figure out how to conditionally format the Fill color by percent, only by manually entered static values.

Would you have a solution?

Re: Conditional Formatting a Guage visual

I've run into this problem myself recently.  Unfortunately, there isn't currently a way to do it with the default Gauge visual.  You can vote for this feature here: https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/18543640-conditional-color-format...

 

My solution was to use the Tachometer custom visual from the Marketplace instead of the default Gauge.

That's unfortunate. I will add my vote for this feature. Thank you for sharing the suggestion. I'll take a look at the Tachometer and see if it will work for our report.

Re: Conditional Formatting a Guage visual

I have this challenge too. I found a good tutorial on how to do this on Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JMSw6i5pzY&feature=youtu.be), but it's not working with a live connection - it won't allow me to select the measure I created with the switch expression. In fact, it won't let me select any values. 

 

Do you know if this is a limitation - cannot select measures when using live connection and trying to do conditional formatting on a guage visual?
