Bring back the Gauge Tag
While there are a lot of chart options available in version 14 of Auto Tag, as well as native Word charts, we would love to be able to use gauges for certain data depictions. Are there any plans to bring this tag back?
Gauges were originally removed as we switched the charting package that we use internally to ChartDirector. While this package does include gauges, the interface for selecting values for a gauge chart was not a straighforward implementation.
So we tabled the feature until it received a strong user request (the backend code is still available).
Now that you have posed an interest it is up for internal discussion again. We will keep you updated with the decision but knowing that there are actives requests definitely helps its chances for being reinstated.
Many of our clients would like to see a gauge tag on their reports. Please bring it back.
