Tracking data, Turning it into percentages by dividing by static number and then creating graph

Options


I want to be able to create a dashboard for each shift. I want to add each shift's percentage for each month and then get the average of that to represent a graph. Could someone point me in the right direction

    Hi @McPhersonTim,

    You may try with different versions of the following formula for each shift and month (by replacing 1 with 2 for February and the Percentage Columns for the Calculation corresponding to each shift as necessary:

    =AVG(COLLECT([1st Percentage]2:[1st Percentage]23, Dates2:Dates23, MONTH(@cell) = 1)) 

    See an example of how this could look like in your current sheet:

    You would then use Month and 1st shift monthly % as the source columns to create your Charts. Due to the nature of Chart Widgets you may want to use a separate sheet to track these metrics but that will fully depend on your environment needs.

    I hope that this can be of help

    Cheers!
