There are some cases where an increase in the value does not signify a positive change, and vice versa. In those cases, an increase in the Metric value should be displayed in red while a decrease in the Metric values should be displayed in green. Examples of these kinds of Metrics are CPC, Bounce Rate and Email Unsubscribers.
For all Basic Metrics, the percentage change color is set by Databox developers and these inverted cases should be accounted for. However, there may be cases where your company's interpretation of a Metric may be different than others.
For example, some companies view an increase in the Facebook Ads Metric "Amount Spent" as a positive change, since it signifies additional exposure, while other companies view an increase in "Amount Spent" as a negative change, since more money is being spent.
