On a dashboard I'm displaying 'cards' representing operating statuses of factory machines (the data is retrieved from a database), management can use the dashboard section to identify the number of machines in each corresponding status. I hope this provides context.
Anyway, I'm trying to decide which is the best / most appropriate way of displaying the statuses. Should I hide the cards if the number is = zero or should I use a placeholder card for every status and put zero in the placeholder?
Option 1: if the count of statuses is 0, show the card with a 0:
Option 2: if the count of statuses is 0, hide the card:
Please try and ignore the quality of the images pasted and the color differences.
