Define and Manage KPIs

Create a New KPI

Each KPI is defined from an existing dataset in Narrator. The logic used in your dataset will always be the underlying logic for the KPI. KPIs are meant to be straightforward and meaningful. Thats why we made creating them from datasets very easy.

Defining a KPI

  1. Build a dataset with the metric you wish to turn into a KPI
  2. Use the [...] menu next to the save button to Make a KPI
  1. Specify the KPI details and Create KPI

Specify KPI Inputs


Tip: KPIs are simple aggregations on top of the parent dataset

KPIs are intended for simple aggregations like average, maximum, minimum, total. More complex metrics that can only be computed within a Group By tab should be represented and explained within a Narrative.

Managing KPIs

Once a KPI has been defined, you can edit the details and share it with others on your team.

Control the KPI details like name, direction, time resolution, and formatting from the Edit tab. Note: Only KPI owners or company admins can view this tab.

You can share the KPI with others on your team by setting it to Shared and sharing it with a tag.
