Additional options for column colouring in Widgets

Currently in Data Insight when setting up Performance metrics, you can use custom color ranges to highlight different rows based on the values in 1 column, however when using multiple indicators there are times when multiple columns may be important in deciding what column to highlight (Such as indicators like Enabled versus Operational).

My suggestion would be to allow multiple columns in Data Insight widgets to have color ranges, and be able to set the order of priority for the color highlights. EG column A has color ranges for 0-20 and for 80-100, and column B has 0-50 and 51-100. If A had a value of 30 and B had a value of 60, it would follow the color ranges of B, but if A was instead 10 then it would follow the color ranges of column A

    Derrek, in the meantime, you may want to consider leverage SevOne's alerting policies. Those will provide you with more complex rule options that may serve you here. When a threshold is violated the device's and/or object's "status" changes to whatever the current most severe alert status is.

    Thank you Derrek, we would like to generally improve the UX flow of color ranging rules. We can consider this new capability during the design of that new UX.
