Adding derived metrics to a dashboard created using Flash
You can create new metrics (called derived metrics) based on attributes
and metrics that have already been added to a dashboard.
For example, you can create a new metric by subtracting the values of
one metric from the values of another metric, such as Revenue Forecast
- Revenue. You can rank a metric's value from least to greatest, or display
metric values as percentages of an accumulated total.
A derived metric performs a calculation on-the-fly with the data available
on a dashboard, without re-executing the dashboard against the data source.
Derived metrics are saved and displayed only in the specific dashboard
in which they are created.
For background information on derived metrics, see About
derived metrics. For steps to create, modify, or delete derived metrics
in a dashboard, see the appropriate topic below:
