Creating a Pie Chart Widget

Pie charts are used to display proportional data and percentages.
To create a pie chart:
  1. Click Dashboards tab, the Dashboards tab, and select a dashboard from the list.
  2. In the Widget library panel, click Create new widget button, the Create new widget button, to create a widget and open it in the Widget Designer.
    For more information, see Creating Widgets.
  3. In the Widget Designer, select Pie Chart from the list of widget types in the top-left corner.
  4. In the data panel on the left, add data to the widget:
    1. In the Categories section, click Add button, the Add button, and select the field that you want to display in the pie chart.
      You can add only one field.

      Usually, the categories of a pie chart contain descriptive data.

      Note: All slices that are smaller or equal to 3% are grouped into a slice called Others. You can hover over the Others slice to display its breakdown. You can also click the Others slice to display a second pie chart that shows the breakdown of all the slices included in the Others slice.
    2. In the Values section, click Add button, the Add button, and select the field whose values determine the size of the pie slices.
      You can add only one field.

      Usually, the values in a pie chart represent numeric data.

  5. In the Design tab on the right, customize the appearance of the widget:
    1. Under Pie Type, select Classic, Donut, or Ring.
    2. Under Legend, specify whether to show or hide the legend and set its position.
    3. Under Labels, specify the labels that you want to display in the pie chart.
  6. Click Apply.
