How to: Set Up a Colored Indicator on Cues of Your Role Center

You can set up an indicator on a Cue that changes color as a result of the value in the Cue. The indicator appears as a colored bar along the top border of the Cue tile.

The indicator provides a visual signal of the status of the Cue’s activity, which can indicate favorable or unfavorable conditions that prompt you to take action. For example, if a Cue displays ongoing sales invoices, you can set up the indicator to appear green (favorable) when total number of ongoing sales invoices is below 10, and appears red (unfavorable) when the total is greater than 20.

To set up the indicator, you specify up to two thresholds that define three ranges of values (low, middle, and high) to which you can apply a different color or style.
