Thermometer Chart in Excel
Thermometer chart looks like a thermometer which represents how much work or goal is achieved or accomplished from the set target. This chart is basically used to find the level of target completed or how far are we have reached in getting the set target. Thermometer charts are best used when we have single target to achieve.
It is easy to create and easy to understand as well. The chart is expressed in percentage.
