141 C H A P T E R 7 | Better reporting Progress bar The progress bar is similar to a data bar in paginated reports, in which the length of the bar represents the actual value as a percentage of the target value. Cylinder The cylinder shows the actual value as a height relative to the target value, but provides no context for the target. This visualization is more useful when you use multiple cylinder gauges to compare different actual values to one another. Half donut Like the progress bar, this gauge uses length to represent the actual value as a percentage of the target value, but uses an arc instead of a horizontal bar. Thermometer The thermometer is like cylinder but provides an outline to help you see the actual value as a percentage of the target value. Figure 7-23: Displaying graphical gauges in a mobile report. Charts You can also add charts as another type of visualization when your mobile report requires more detail than gauges provide. But as with gauges, there are limited options for formatting a chart. Most chart elements allow you to set the number format for the axis labels and tooltips. Some chart elements allow you to switch a toggle to display a legend. There are several different chart types that you can add to a mobile report: Time chart This chart type uses a date/time column on the horizontal axis and plots a numeric value as a column chart series by default. You can change the time increment for the horizontal axis. You can change the visualization type to stacked bars, 100% stacked bars, line, stacked area, or stacked step area or keep the default side-by-side bar (column) visualization, as shown here:
