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."
|@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.|
|Is there a way to connect to a database for real time data?|
|@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. |
|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.|
|Thank you Ben for the fix! |
|I am also getting this SPCom error regarding the GoalAmount field when attempting to link to SP list. What is the fix?|
|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.|
|I got it working...the problem was a typo in the list name.|
|I have added the webpart to the page and only text are appearing. The graphic for the actual thermometer is not.|

|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?|

|License Question |
|Is this a yearly license? or one time fee?|
|it is a one time (non-recurring) license.|
|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. |
|So does this product no longer work with SharePoint Online?|

yes, it is compatible with SP2013 and SP 2016.

|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!|
As mentioned by a couple previous people, we have the same problem with just text showing up.
|Good morning, how would you go about and change the increments to specific number? i.e. 1000-2000-3000 etc? or 500-1000-1500 etc?|
i can't seem to find this option
|Is there a way to update thermometers on multiple pages from a single list? I have 8 thermometers and 8 separate lists controlling them. Not seeing a way to tie them to a particular list item. |
|I cannot get the read from a list to work. Can you explain how to enter the fields so the list is found? I keep getting an error that the list is not found. Your video doesn't cover that.|
you actually need to enter the list name into the "List Name" web part setting. You also can get some online help by clicking the "?".
Please also note how to set the "Server Relative Web Url" (if needed).
|I think I figured it out. It doesn't like spaces in the name of the list?|
|has anyone gotten this to work by using an External List? It doesn't seem to find it. Using SP 2013|
