UDT Examples

Here are a few examples below:

Gauge Chart Builder

Creating Gauge charts in Excel is easy if you use automated solutions. Connect the actual value to the gauge in a single click, add multiple zones, and customize your zone colors. Finally, change the default skin or use the chart without skin. There are no limits: you can use any number of gauges. Fully automated operation and stability are its characteristics. The latest version of UDT enables 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 (also called a circular bar chart) is 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, then click on 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. UDT 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.

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. 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.

Marimekko chart

Marimekko chart (aka mekko chart) is the newest chart type of the UDT 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.
