Edit wording "Goal" in KPI visualisation

Hello 

 

Is there a quick way to customise / amend the word "Goal" in the standard KPI visualisation?

 

I simply want to change "Goal" to "Same Period Last Year"

 

Tried to read up on customising visuals and installed Node but it's a bit too complex for my little brain at the moment.  

 

Thanks as always.

@MG83 You can choose to show or hide that word via UI but not possible to edit it currently.

@ankitpatira Thanks. If I choose to hide and then it hides the "Goal's" value too which is a shame.

Hi @MG83,

 

Currently, it's not supported to change "Goal" word in a KPI visual.

 

In my opinion, KPI title shows the Indicator and Target goals field name, it's easy for us to find which are compared in this visual. And the value after "Goal:" displays the target goal value actually, use the word "Goal" is proper. So I don't think it's necessary to change the word "Goal" to other word.

Re: Edit wording "Goal" in KPI visualisation

Think it would be good to have the option to edit the wording. 

 

I understand it's a KPI Indicator visualisation but it's also good visualisation to show a quick snapshot of performance against the same period last year. However the same period last year is not necessarily the goal or target of the organisation.

Re: Edit wording "Goal" in KPI visualisation

Although i think you're right, sometimes people find it hard to understand that a "goal" should be seen in the context of a value needing to be above or below that goal. For example everyone understands that a profit goal of 1 million is "to be reached", in which the term "goal" is suitable, but when talking about a goal of € 10,000,- of internal failure costs, people find it hard to understand that the goal is to stay under it, even though the KPI turns green/red when below/above it. In my opinion, also showing the "higher is good/lower is good" in a visual kind of way can be a solution to this.

@MG83@SanderBeukers I think Power Pivot model and KPIs may be more suit for your requirement. You can drag target and actual fields into the Pivot table and also place KPIS. Then import this workbook into Power BI desktop. See: Import and display KPIs.

 

Also you can post a suggestion in Ideas Forum to help us improve the KPI visual.

Re: Edit wording "Goal" in KPI visualisation

Completely agree - a very common use case would be to compare a metric vs the previous month (MoM), previous week (WoW) and/or the previous year (YoY).

 

For some reason this is a frequent comission from most dataviz tools requiring a lot of manual work.

 

Google Data Studio is the only tool I've found so far that makes this as simple as a tickbox.

 

The KPI card seems like a good option, but I'd like:

1. Ability to change the 'Goal' text to something else, e.g. 'MoM'

2. Ability to add multiple goals (1 primary that impacts main colour coding, icon etc, plus additional secondary goals (e.g. WoW or YoY))

3. Ability to customise alert indicators, e.g. only show negative warnings - show red circle/flag rather than exclaimation

4. Ability to define a threshold for the neutral (e.g. +-2.5% change)

5. Ability to change layout, e.g. show indicators on side rather than beneath

6. The Display Units never seem to work on 'auto' for me with large numbers simply overrunning the KPI card limits

Any updates on how to rename/relabel "Goal" on KPI Visual. I did not find anything yet.
