Hello Bertrand, Evaluate monthly my actual suppliers is a similar task to select the best supplier. The only difference is that this is done constantly and we need a historical data to see how the suppliers are evolving.

I can do this exporting the evaluation table to an excel sheet and creating a graph to evaluate the monthly evolution of suppliers, but are you planning to do something like this in this dashboard function? Thanks a lot,
