#WOW2023 | 22 | Filtering and Highlighting


Last week, our team was faced with an unique challenge and I’m using it as the basis for this week’s challenge!

The premise is quite simple – create a dashboard that shows KPIs and a trend of the selected kpi. Allow the user to filter dates, change the period type and select a period within that type. The selected period values should be shown in KPIs vs total as well as highlighted on the trend chart. 

Simple enough, right? Not that outlandish of a request. Let’s have some fun this week 🙂 


  • Dashboard Size: 1000×800
  • Allow users to Filter Order date
  • Allows users to change the date level
  • All users to select a specific date period
  • Show KPIs (Sales, Profit, Profit Ratio, and # of Orders)
    • Total Value of date range
    • Selected time period value
    • Allow user to dynamically select which KPI shows in the trend
  • Show trend line of selected KPI for the selected date range
    • Highlight selected time period on the trend line


This week uses Superstore data set. You can find it here on Data.World

You can add this image to show the selected KPI if you’d like.
