Specifying qualitative range as percentages

The Gauge and Bullet visuals use the Qualitative Ranges shelf to define the fit of the main value (on the Measure shelf) relative the value specified by the Compare To shelf. An alternate approach is to specify these ranges as percentages.

To use the percentage option, navigate to the Data menu, and select Use percentages of "Compare To" value if no qualitative data provided. Then specify the percentage value for the Lowest, Middle, and Highest ranges.
By default, these are 60%, 80%, and 100%, respectively. Note that the scale accommodates up to 200%, to track outperforming categories.

The visual on the left shows the ranges when they are explicitly defined as scalar values 600, 700, and 800. The visual on the right shows the qualitative ranges as percentages: 60%, 80%, and 100%.
