Dashboard gauges get a lot of haters - but I think it's undeserved. Here's some tips I have for helping users understand how objects are related. In my Planning Your Dashboard post, I talk about how to plan your KPIs and supporting information. In the post, I show how I used horizontal containers to control the layout - here's specifically what I did.
I had already built the objects - which actually made this a more difficult task.
Start a new section and add 2 horizontal containers.
In one of the containers, change the background color and set transparency around 70%.
Duplicate the container with the color and move it to the bottom.
Return to your other tab, right-click the objects and move to the new section.
Then drag the objects into the container. Yeah ... time for happy feet.
