I guess I need Gauge Chart / Dashboard KPI 101 course.... I mostly use gauge charts to COUNT occurrences of something so that I can then display the occurrences as a KPI on a dashboard. By nature gauge charts are intended to sum or average data. I have been successful thus far in 'summing' some not numeric field so have been clubbing along well enough after I learned early on that summing a numeric Record ID can result in a very large number. LOLIn any case, I thought I would ask about the proper way to count records for the purpose of displaying as a KPI on a dashboard.
I think you are just missing seeing that the very last choice on that drop down list of numeric fields is the one to simply count the # of records.
Guess it was Gauge Reports 101. LOL. Thanks for taking the time. :)
