Advanced Formulas

A "Status" or "Rating" metric can be referenced in formulas for other metrics, and can also itself be calculated from other values. 

The underlying value will be converted to a "Status" or "Rating" based on these rules:

Status: 

  • Green: value is positive

  • Amber: value is zero

  • Red: value is negative

Rating:

  • 0-stars: value is zero

  • 1 - 5 stars: value is 1 - 5

  • Any other value is not valid
