Progress bar is a bar representation of the measure, you can set the color either using the color picker or by expression.
You can also toggle show value to show the figure inside the bar.


The MiniChart allows you to add a small line or bar chart into each row of the table based on the dimensions. This works by selecting the mini chart dimension.

The interval colouring requires you to enter a JSON string which defines the interval and the color code how the data points should be colored.


='[{"from": -1000, "to": 0, "color": "#ff0000"}, {"from": 0, "to": 1000000, "color": "#00ff00"}]'

If data points fall outside of a defined interval, they will not be plotted.
