Cool Feature Alert!

Visualizations…I have a feeling you haven’t tried them yet, but they’re awesome now so it’s time!

Let’s say you have a report that gives you a ton of really valuable info…but I know sometimes you might wish that you could display some of that great data visually instead of just a bunch of data. A picture paints a thousand words, after all, right?

Here’s how it works:

Let’s say you have a column where you are tracking Budget Variance information… if that Budget Variance is favourable (like really favourable!), maybe you want to display the number with a nice big happy face! Now if it’s favourable but starting to slide a little, maybe you want to display that variance data with a caution sign. And of course if that variance has slid past the point of where you’re comfortable, maybe you want FAST to show you that data as a big, red “thumbs down”….you choose the parameters and you choose from our huge library of cool and cheeky images!

Run the report and then get visual indicators about where that budget really is! Plus, this works in any and every FAST App! Create cool Visualizations for age grouping of employees, application status or course enrolment numbers – the sky’s truly the limit!

PS – don’t forget to add a Virtual Column so that you can see both the original data and the Visualizations side by side!
