Ultimate Dashboard Tools – Excel Add-in – Chart Examples

Here are a few examples below!

Sankey Diagram is a brand new visualization in UDT; it shows relationships between different data points. With its help, you can create flow diagrams and various breakdowns in seconds.

Visualize your customer journey or analyze your website traffic using the Sankey diagram.

Convert an Income Statement to a Sankey Diagram

A new feature debuts in v11. After several months of intensive coding, our dream has finally come true, and now you can easily convert an Income Statement into a Sankey Diagram.

Vertical Variance Charts

In the new version, we have significantly improved the variance charts, and we have also enhanced the handling of labels.

Many of you have also requested that deviations be displayed in percentage form from now on. We are pleased to announce that this development has been completed!

Enhanced Clarity: Presenting deviations as percentages offers a clearer, more intuitive understanding of performance differences. It’s easier to grasp that a 25% deviation is significant, rather than interpreting absolute values.

Advanced Variance charts

Look at this powerful section; you can create various variance charts with a single click! You only need to highlight the plan and actual data rows. It is good to know that the dynamic chart principle is also in effect. If we change the value of one cell, then the chart will change in real time.

Gauge Chart Builder

Creating Gauge charts in Excel is easy if you use automated solutions. Connect the actual value to the gauge with a single click, add multiple zones, and customize zone colors. Change the default skin or use the chart without a skin. With no limits on the number of gauges, enjoy fully automated operation and stability. The latest UDT version supports up to 12 zones for gauges.

Dual Gauge Chart

There are several ways of showing variance to the target. If you like gauges, you can use them for comparison purposes. For example, in the picture below, we demonstrated how to compare the Q3 vs. Q4 performance. The chart displays the variance between the plan and the actual value.

Radial Bar Chart

A radial bar chart (circular bar chart) is an eye-catching visualization. We’ll fully support Excel’s latest data visualization trends in future releases! The primary function is comparison. First, select the data and click the Radial Bar Chart icon.

Polar Area Chart

Use the polar area (Windrose chart) to visualize the sales distribution easily. The polar area chart presents data in a circular format; the length of each slice around the circle indicates what you want to measure. In the example below, we display the sales distribution for 12 months. Looks great!

Waterfall Charts (Vertical and Horizontal)

A waterfall chart is great if you want to show the positive and negative contributions to the net value. By default, Excel supports horizontal Waterfall charts only. The function provides horizontal and vertical chart types and enables you to use subtotals.


Sales Funnel

If you are in Marketing, this tool is yours. At the top of the sales funnel chart, there are a large number of potential customers. However, at the end of the funnel, only a small fraction of these customers purchase your service or product. The chart helps you to break the purchasing process down. Select all stages you want to visualize and click on the funnel icon. Automate repetitive tasks with our funnel graph so your sales team can spend less time on data entry!


Bullet Graph

Bullet charts are a variation of a bar chart developed by Stephen Few to display multiple measures and create easy-to-read visualizations. In addition, the bullet graph is a space saver, and you can use it vertically or horizontally.

Marimekko chart

Marimekko chart (aka mekko chart) is the latest visualization type of chart add-in. In a mekko chart, the column widths show one set of %, and the column stacks show another set of %. If you want to create this complex chart manually, you’ll need time and patience. However, from now the mekko chart is fully supported! Highlight the columns containing the base data. After that, you don’t have to do anything but click on the bullet chart icon on the ribbon.

mekko chart ultimate dashboard tools


The add-in creates portable dashboards. Share your work with colleagues or with your boss! First, install the add-in, then create and modify advanced charts. You can view the dashboard without trouble if the add-in is not installed on the PC. Just change the actual values, and the chart will be reflected.
