Headlines can display a single number or compare two numbers. You can display both measures and attributes.
Headlines have two sections: Measure (primary) and Measure (secondary).
You can add one item to each section. If you add two items, the insight also displays the change in percent (versus) between the primary measure (the main number) and the secondary measure.
To compare your data to the same period of the previous year, see Time over Time Comparison.
For information about common characteristics and settings of all insights, see Insight Types.
Headlines versus KPIs
On KPI Dashboards , you can also use Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to display a single number or compare two nubers. KPIs are similar to headline insights, however, there are some differences:
- KPIs display only measures and calculated measures. Headlines can also display attributes.
- On KPI Dashboards, KPIs can have alerts that notify you about reaching a certain limit. Headlines do not support alerts.
Use Headline insights to compare measures and attributes to the same period of the previous year.
