Custom dashboards: Big number percent widget

Background and context

When creating custom dashboards and specifically the big number widget we are currently limited to show data from a dataset for where a specific filter can be created. There is no way to show a relation between two datasets.

Wanted feature / solution proposal

To be able to show relation between two datasets in percent.


  • Full dataset: All calls to a backend API path in an application perspective

    • 1M calls

  • Partial dataset: All calls to a backend API path originating from a mobile app

    • 250K calls

  • Checkbox: [x] Invert relation

The resulting widget number should show

  • 25% by default

  • 75% if the 'Invert relation' is checked

    The idea to invert relations is quite interesting.
    Could we connect and get a deeper understanding of your use cases?
