Use a KPI card to display the value of a line item in a module. Alternatively, you can choose to display the top-left cell of a view. With a view, you can use filters or show a selection to determine the line item. KPI cards are useful if you want to emphasize the value of an important cell.

If you want a sparkline on your KPI card, then select a line item as the data source.

You can add a KPI card using a line item in a module, or a view data source.

      Your description displays as a hint when you hover your cursor over the information icon (i) on the published card.
