New video: Business Value Dashboard Tips and Tricks


Imagine you want to present the course of the sun for a particular location by using BVD. It might seem logical to use a Line Chart or a Spark Line in Visio for this task.

Now let’s assume the course of the sun is similar over a certain period of time and you are not interested in the absolute altitude of the sun. Can you visualize the course of the sun using either a Bar Chart, Status Color Groups, or Status Visible Groups?

The answer is – yes, you can!

Our new video shows how to modify the shapes accordingly using Visio, and how to define different aspects in BVD based on the same data source.

Blog_Picture_BVD_Tips_&_Tricks_klein_plus_plus.pngThe screenshot on the left shows two semicircles. Both are linked to the same data source. Is this a typical use case? Typical is to reflect both, the details and the overall status. The exact number of occurrences, for example of critical problems, is depicted in the inner semicircle. Whether the current number is considered to be within a normal, warning, or critical range is visualized via the outer semicircle.


You should be familiar with the general process of creating BVD dashboards in order to benefit from the video.
