Need help creating Sharepoint KPI

Posted on 2010-08-16

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I would like to create a KPI that would check if the values in column A are empty and show the following:

Green light -> 100% of items in the list have value in column A
Yellow light ->50-100% of items in the list have value in column A
Red light ->0-50% of items in the list have value in column A

I was playing around with it but keep getting the "The specified value calculation is not valid. Specify a valid value calculation" error message.

I use MOSS 2007.

Can you post the calculation?

Under "Value Calculation: " I selected  "Percentage of list items in the view where". Then I tried to choose the column name, then "is equal to" and leave empty the value field.

I would create a calculated column which has a value of 1 if the field is not null


and then use this field in your value calculation
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I got the error first but it was just missing the bracket. How can I modify this calculation to check for the value in two columns with OR ?

No just use the calculated field and use percentage where value is less than 1

Let me rephrase it: how to change your formula to check if a value in Column A OR B is blank. Then I will do the KPI based on that.

IF(NOT(ISBLANK([Column1])), IF(NOT(ISBLANK([Column2])),1,0),0)

Sorry I have not got SharePoint up and running to check.
