A conversion profile is a group of settings that recalculates measure actuals and targets from one unit of measure to a related unit of measure. Profiles are typically created for international unit conversion, for example, to convert from pounds to kilograms. Administrators can create conversion profiles to enable users to automatically convert their measures and refresh the values displayed in their dashboards and views.
Note: When creating a new conversion profile, make sure you select units of measure that are related. It would not make sense to convert quantities in a unit of measure like euros to those of a unit of measure like incidents.
The Edit Units Conversion Profile panel opens.
The New Units Conversion Profile panel opens, as shown in the following image.
In the conversion formula, you can use an opening and closing square bracket to represent the unit being converted as shown in the image below. This allows you to just type  instead of the actual unit name. The use of complex formulas including parentheses and multiple operations is also supported.
The new conversion profile will be immediately available for end users.
You can enable owners to perform measure conversion by selecting a unit of measure conversion profile in the Edit Owner panel. To set a default conversion profile for an owner:
The Edit Owner panel opens.
You can also select No Conversion to prevent conversions.
