Creating a Pie/ Donut Chart

Learn how to create and format a Pie/ Donut Chart

Note: Users should be familiar with how to create a basic/ chart table. If you're not, please refer to Creating basic charts and tables.
To create a Pie Chart, change the visualization type from Basic Chart to Pie Chart. This option is in the Selection section of the screen.

Choose a Metric for the Pie Chart. Pie Charts can only have 1 Metric.

Note:  If the user selects a Metric and then clicks on another Metric, the original Metric will be replaced.

In the example below, I have chosen to create a Pie Chart for Headcount (EOP). By default, the Pie Chart shows Headcount (EOP) by years since Timeperiods is the default time dimension.

Instead of showing all years, I chose to filter for 2017 for the Pie Chart example. In the example, Age is added as dimension to show the Pie slices by age grouping. 

Note: Multiple dimensions can be added to the selection. The combination of unique nodes across dimensions will each create a slice in the pie. For example if a dimension with two nodes Diverse and Non-Diverse was added, the Pie Chart would have slices Diverse 20-<30, Non-Diverse 20-<30, Diverse 30-<40, Non-Diverse 30-<40, etc.

To change a Pie Chart into a Donut, click on the Metric to see Series Type option and select Donut.

The Pie Chart will now be a Donut Chart.

By default, the Pie Chart shows the Metric values. To show the percentage of the whole, select options under Data labels when clicked on the Metric. 

The example below shows both Values and Percentages.
