Here you can create custom metrics for the chosen account. This means that you can individually filter metrics that are predefined.
Further information on creating custom formulas can be found in the training chapter on Custom Figures.
- Metric name: The name of the custom metric. You may only use a name that is not a name of another custom metric or formula.
- Standard Metric: The predefined metric that you want to filter.
- Metric filter: Use the filter engine to restrict the values. Further information on creating custom metrics can be found in the training chapter on Segmentation and Filter Options.
- Dimension reference: The dimension reference defines whether the metric should relate to the single elements of the dimension. This option is helpful in case you want to use this metric in custom formulas.
- Active: This metric will relate to the single elements of the analyzed dimension. This option is used as a standard.
- Inactive: The cumulated metric value for the chosen time period will be shown.
- Format: Here you can adapt the output of the result in the data table.
- Standard: The result is not formatted.
- Time: The result is displayed in the format [hh:mm:ss].
- Currency: The currency symbol which is set in the system configuration is added.
- Distribution: The symbol "%" is added.
- Comparison: The symbol "%" is added.
- Visualization: Within the data table different visualizations can be helpful when interpreting data.
- Traffic lights: Shows a red (=bad), green (=good) or yellow (=medium) dot.
The colours are chosen automatically based on the actual values of the formula; anyway, you can also adapt the value ranges for the colours (see "Threshold values").
- Heatmap: Shows five differently bright blue tones. The darker the colour, the better the value.
- The colours are chosen automatically based on the actual values of the formula; anyway, you can also adapt the value ranges for the colours (see "Threshold values").
- Threshold Values: Is only available if you choose traffic lights or heatmap.
The colours are chosen automatically based on the actual values of the formula.
This can be adapted here.
Example: Automatic vs. manually specified colouring
- Target value: Is only available if you choose Traffic lights or Heatmap.
Defines whether the target is a preferably high or low value.
Using Traffic lights, high values are green and low values are red.
Using Heatmap, high values are dark blue and low values are light blue.
Using Traffic lights, high values are red and low values are green.
Using Heatmap, high values are light blue and low values are dark blue.
- Decimal places: Defines how many decimal places are put out. If "0" is set, values are rounded off. If no decimal places are set, the values are not rounded off.
- Metric period: Defines whether the metric should relate to the analysis period (or the the report period, respectively) or to an alternative period.
- Metric scope: The metric scope defines how a metric relates to the dimension with which it is used together in an analysis.
The predefined scope (Default Scope) dependend on the scope in which the dimension and metric are calculated. It can be extended in Mapp Intelligence.Further information on the metric scope can be found in the training chapter on Custom Figures.
- Description: The description is shown in the overview on custom metrics.
