The last element we deal with is 'Big Numbers'. The name says it all, they are big numbers based on data within VendorLink. Big numbers make it very easy to see important numbers at a glance. Big Numbers are always shown at the top of the report.
Adding a Big Number to a report
Big numbers are always added from the side panel under Dashboards. Follow the instructions below to add a 'Big Number' to a report.
- Navigate to Dashboards and open the report you wish to add the Big Number to.
- In the menu on the left, click Numbers to open the Big Number list. All big numbers are explained here.
- Use the drop-down menu to select a Big Number.
- A second drop-down menu appears. Select an entity for the Big Number (commodity, cost type etc.)
- Click 'Add'.
The Big Number has now been added to the report, and will look similair to the example below. In this example, the spend of the current year is €14.147.685. This is a decrease of 6.37% compared to the year prior.
We have added all different types of elements to our report. In the next lesson you will learn more about the visual layout of reports.
