I'm trying to get a very simple KPI list working for a client's home page, and am finding that I am unable to customize the list view in any way. Lots of questions about this out there, but no answers I could find.
One forum respondent suggests using the "Display multiple indicators columns" section, but these options are grayed-out for me, as they are for others.
What I want to do is remove the "Goal" and "Value" numbers and add the "Detail Link" to the view so that it displays title, traffic light indicator, and link.
I can get halfway there - the "Goal" and "Value" columns can't be hidden in a standard way (i.e. by removing them from the view) but can be suppressed by checking the "Show only status icon" checkbox in the Modify Web Part tool pane. Not intuitive, but OK.
But for the "detail" link - When I customize the views in the original KPI list I get some very buggy behavior - i.e. the view does not reflect my modifications even though my custom settings are saved when I return to "modify this view" mode.
It's not possible to convert the Key Performance Indicators web part to a data view in SP Designer, as you can with most other list and library web parts. The same is true for the KPI Details web part.
Extremely frustrating. I could create my own conditional formatting using custom code, however my goal is to deliver an easily-maintainable solution to my client, using as much out-of-box functionality as possible.
If anyone has found a workaround for this, please let me know!
