Do you have any "to do" dashboards in your organization? I do! These often come with a big indicator: items left to do. I like to use conditional formatting in those indicators to make getting to 0 more satisfying. It's a small thing, but it's surprising how often I hear about it from my users.
Judging by the feedback I receive, this is really all the people want.
Now, I get it. Most dashboards (especially public-facing ones) probably ought to be more professional. But if nobody's forcing you to make a dry and soulless infographic, why not loosen up a little?
Believe it or not, I actually got a feature request recently to take the emoji idea further: could I make the emoji change randomly?
Of course I can!
Get your indicator set up the way you want, and just slip this little bit of Arcade into your Advanced Formatting code block, adjusting the list of emojis to your liking:
Inspection data can contain multiple important attributes that describe the quality of a facility.
