Thresholds - Visualizer

SAP Fieldglass Visualizer is a collection of dashboards and graphs that can be used as business reporting tools to assist in corporate decision-making. They can be accessed via the Analytics menu in the main menu bar.

Using warning and critical level thresholds that you set with the Thresholds - Visualizer admin object, you can be visually alerted when performance measurements are not meeting expected success rates.

Watch the video for an example of how Visualizer can be used.

Thresholds – Visualizer Details page

The Visualizer Thresholds are standard in SAP Fieldglass and can be edited here, but not added or deleted.

The metrics included in the Thresholds table are used in the Visualizer tool to present the state of their key performance indicators (KPI) using charts and dashboards. Each metric can be enabled and thresholds can be entered to alert buyers when the behavior of each is at a warning level and a critical level of performance.
