Radial Gauge with dynamic Maximum value and Actual bigger than target


I wanted to compare the Actuals and Target of my dataset so I used default Gauge visual on Power BI as the following:


Now there are follwoing problems:

1. The Maximum value  is double the Actual by default (PBI preference) which is not good forPicture 6 because my Target is lost which creats confusion, so how to choose a dynamic Maximum based on either Actual or Target which is bigger? (look at picture 4 where my target is bigger but in picture 1 the Actual is bigger value!)

2. in picture 2 when there is no data for Actual or Target or both the visual shows up as blank! how to avoid it?

3. why Picture 1 and 6 are deshaped and for a general user look like skewed? How I can avoid it to happen?

Many thanks in advance supporters and super users 🙂

Re: Radial Gauge with dynamic Maximum value and Actual bigger than target

Hi @bestmbaman ,

1. I'm afraid that we may not choose a dynamic Maximum based on either Actual or Target which is bigger for this visual by my tests. 

2. If you do not have values, it will show blank. What is your desired output?

3. I cannot reproduce your issue by my test with the latest version of power bi desktop.

Please check if you have installed the latest version of Power BI Desktop 2.69.5467.2151.

If you still need help, please share a dummy pbix file which can reproduce the scenario, so that we can help further investigate on it? You can upload it to OneDrive and post the link here. Do mask sensitive data before uploading.

In addition, you may try other custom visuals which may meet your requirement.

Best Regards,

@v-piga-msftThanks foor the reply,

However I need to apply a condition so whenever the Actual is below the target the gauge colors change automatically so the user could see and react upon them! I found a way to define a dynamic Maximum but still struggling to find how to apply conditions on my gauges?!

Please reply @v-piga-msft
