This, along with the table widget is the most commonly used type of widget in Cascade. With the goal widget, you can select a specific goal and any aligned goals and show the progress with a line graph, bar chart, gantt chart, or table. The KPI's shown below were comprised entirely out of this widget.
To add a Goals Widget:
First click "Add widget."
Choose the "Goals widget" and search for a goal.
Then, decide if you want to display all aligned goals, or only the overarching goal that you chose.
Then choose how you'd like to display your content. Options are listed below:
Line graph or Bar Chart over time
You can chose to display the target and threshold (if you've set a universal tolerance) directly on the widget. If you tick these off, we recommend turning on the "Display legend" tick-box as it makes things very clear for anyone viewing the widget.
If you want to view your information in bar chart form, un-check the line chart, click the bar chart, and chose whether you want the information to be displayed cumulatively or non cumulatively. This bar chart will show you a bar for every milestone.
Other configuration options of the line or bar chart:
Remove the header altogether
Selecting the offset will tell you how ahead or behind the goal is from the target on the top banner of the widget
Selecting the "Show Sub header" will remove any of the basic information on the goal (for example owner, weighting, time allocated, dates). Go ahead and un-check any of these if they are not applicable and don't need to be seen on the dashboard.
