The Goal Thermometer SharePoint Web Part is perfect for any sort of goal, whether it be sales, donations, fundraising, or even reporting project status (eg. KPI). Set the Goal Amount and Current Amount and when the page loads the Thermometer smoothly fills from 0 to the current amount in a couple seconds. You can configure the amounts, the time it takes to fill the thermometer, where the amounts come from (from Web Part Properties or a Sharepoint List). You can also choose between using a small or large gauge.
Important Note: Microsoft recently released an announcement (http://bit.ly/2atcInx) that they are effectively Shutting Down Sandbox Solutions with Code in Office 365 within 30 days from July 29 2016. Some clients are already impacted prematurely. Within 30 days your Product will likely become disabled and therefore unusable. This decision has come as a shock to the SharePoint community and we are working on path forward. Sandbox solutions have been deprecated for years but are (were) a reliable way to build SharePoint Web Parts for on and off premise sites. There was no earlier warning with a specific date that Sandbox Solutions with Code would be disabled, therefore we couldn’t warn our customers ahead of time. We apologize for the inconvenience. Note, the product still works On Premise including SharePoint 2016.

Hi, Another great webpart. We have a few feature request that may also be of benefit to others. We have a fund raising list where we list all our fund raising activities. In this list we have the fields, Charity, Event Title, Event Description, Event date, event Target (£) and Money Raised (£). This list also has views to filter by event date. How can we get your webpart to read the calculated total of the target and money raised columns?If we specifiy these columns in the settings we get a "Themometer Web Part Error: Goal Amount not found in list view, make sure field is displayed in view."
Ben 1/15/2015 04:57
@Mark, this is most likely due to using an invalid field name. The field names you must specify are internal field names, so they don't typically have spaces or special chars in them. And, the fields must be included in the view you choose.

As we already use jQuery on our site, we needed to comment line 5 of the app.js (jQuery.noConflict();) out to make it work.
Chris 4/2/2015 01:16
Is there a way to connect to a database for real time data?
Ben 4/2/2015 21:26
@Chris, the web part is only designed to read data from lists. BUT, you could always configure an External Content Type and External List (using Business Connectivity Services). Once the data is in a list you could point the Thermometer web part at the list.
Judd 10/7/2015 02:33
Like others, I cannot get the web part to successfully read from a list. I get the message "Goal Thermometer SPCOM Request failed. Column 'GoalAmount' does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user." I cannot use this web part until this is fixed. Please note that I am ready to buy a license today. Thanks.
Judd 10/9/2015 09:39
Thank you Ben for the fix!
Ellen 10/30/2015 20:30
I am also getting this SPCom error regarding the GoalAmount field when attempting to link to SP list. What is the fix?
Ellen 1/25/2016 19:40
I purchased the web part several months ago, and got it working from list for our first campaign. We are starting a new campaign, and I am now getting SPCom Request failed. Unknown error undefined, when attempting to link to SP list. Please help.
Ellen 1/25/2016 19:46
I got it working...the problem was a typo in the list name.
Chris 4/28/2016 19:38
I have added the webpart to the page and only text are appearing. The graphic for the actual thermometer is not.
Larry Talley 8/12/2016 19:55
This has been a great tool for us! As we move forward with new campaigns, can you tell me the graphic names and their location so we can have a developer change the picture? Any tips for us as we attempt to code a new picture?
Thank you, Larry Talley HMS SharePoint Architect
License Question 9/21/2016 16:04
Is this a yearly license? or one time fee?
Juerg 9/21/2016 16:08
it is a one time (non-recurring) license.
Lobna 1/23/2017 22:17
I have the same problem that Judd had: I cannot get the web part to successfully read from a list. I get the message "Goal Thermometer SPCOM Request failed. Column 'GoalAmount' does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user." I cannot use this web part until this is fixed.
Jonathan 1/30/2017 23:36
So does this product no longer work with SharePoint Online?
Ellen Farley 3/8/2017 19:14
Purchased this web part for 2010 on premise farm, but will be upgrading to 2013 in next month...is the web-part compatible with 2013?
Juerg 3/9/2017 11:45
Ellen, yes, it is compatible with SP2013 and SP 2016.
Terri Smith 4/12/2017 18:35
This is great. Is there a way in CSS to make just the goal number a different font/color? I see where I can update all of the numbers but we just want to update the goal. Thanks in advance!
