I have a dashboard component based on a report in which Opportunities are Grouped By CreatedDate with sum of revenue for every day.

The output is something like below. (Each color represents each day and the revenue values).

enter image description here

What I want is ONLY the highest/greatest amount among these values (3.5k) to be displayed. OR I want to know on which Date is the highest amount and display only that date. How can I get this done in a report/dashboard?

I don't mind changing the funnel to a metric or any other dashboard type and also willing to use 2 different reports/dashboard components etc.

Note: This is in Lightning Experience.

EDIT: Note that this answer is only valid for non-lightning dashboards. The question turned out to be on a Lightning Experience dashboard. Nevertheless I'm leaving the answer here so it might help other people.

In the dashboard Component Editor (click on the little wrench on the top-right of the dashboard component), in the Formatting tab, you can set 'Maximum Values Displayed'. Set that to 1 and the 'Sort Rows By' to 'Value Descending'. That should get you what you want.

  • So these options aren't available in Lightning Experience. And to do this in classic, I have to completely re-do my whole dashboard in Classic, which is not a good option for me, right now.
