Automatically Created KPIs
An introduction to automatically created KPIs in Plecto.
What are automatically created KPIs?
When connecting to a system, Plecto automatically creates a quantity formula that counts the number of registrations in a data source. We call this quantity formula an automatically created KPI.
When you select a formula, for example, on a dashboard widget, the automatically created KPIs will be part of the KPI drop-down list as "Number of [data source name]."
An example of a KPI list with automatically created KPIs highlighted.
The automatically created KPIs are basic quantity formulas that use the
Count data function:
( Count(<data_source>) )
The automatically created KPIs are included in the KPI drop-down list in all of our features, but they are not part of the formula list under KPI management > Formulas in Plecto. It is also not possible to edit the automatically created KPIs. If you want to reuse the formula, you will have to create a new one using the Count function as shown above.
