Gauge charts are a great way to display single values. By defining color ranges in your gauge charts, you can display zones within the gauge (like 'bad', 'average', and 'good'). For example, let's say that you have a course evaluation survey where you ask "How satisfied were you with the course?" and you want to display it as a gauge, it would look like this:
By adding color ranges, you can create the above zones so that your chart looks more like this:
To add color ranges, you have to:
- Click on the title of your chart to edit its settings.
- Enable the add ranges settings.
- Insert the number of ranges. For this example, we are adding 3 ranges.
- Define your ranges with a value. Range 1 must be larger than the lowest value, range 2 needs to be larger than range 3, etc. Your last range must be equal to or smaller than the largest value. In this example, the range values look like this:
- Range 1: 3. The question has a scale of 1 to 7, meaning 1 is the lowest value. This means that the first range is from 1 to 3.
- Range 2: 5. This means that the second range is from 3 to 5.
- Range 3: 7. The last value is 7. This means that the last range is from 5 to 7.
- Now you can play around with the color theme for your ranges. Since this example displays a "bad", "neutral", and "good" zone, we have chosen the default color theme called "Net Promoter Score (NPS)"
