LivePlan's Scoreboard lets you track the health of your business using a variety of different financial metrics. There are seven different types of charts to help you visualize these metrics.
Good vs. bad news in charts
Throughout the Scoreboard, colors (green or red) and directional arrows (up or down) are used to give you quick visual feedback about where you stand compared to the forecast, the previous period, or the same period last year
Sometimes it's difficult to figure out why a value is good news or bad news for a particular metric. The information in this article might help: Metrics available on the LivePlan Scoreboard
How metric types and behavior affect chart availability
For logical reasons, not all chart types are available for every metric. To give you an example: it doesn't make sense to visualize a metric like operating income using a donut chart, because operating income can't be broken down into the segments required for a donut chart. Consequently, the chart types available for each metric depend on that metric's type (segmented or overall) and behavior (accumulating or fluctuating).
