A pie chart is used for showing the relative size of different parts of the whole. It works best when there are a small number of categories.
To create a pie chart, you must first create a dashboard on which to add it.
Step 1: Select “Charts” in the menu bar to view all the Chart visualisation options.
Step 2: Select “Pie Chart” from the chart options.
Note: The default pie chart will be placed on your Dashboard. Drag it to wherever you want by grabbing the header and you can resize it by dragging the bottom right corner.
Step 3: Click the “Edit” menu on the chart header to edit your chart’s data, appearance and social media settings.
Step 4: To link data to the chart, select the “Data” tab in the edit popup, select the data file from the left file tree. The file will open in the right data selection area.
Step 5: Select the data columns that you want to display on the chart. Select “Choose as label” if your column has datatype “text” and select “Choose as value” if your column has datatype “numeric”.
Note: For “choose as label”, your file should have text based column to use as category labels. You can check the datatype of column by clicking the column in the “Data Wrangler”.
Step 6: A preview of your chart will be generated (the box with the black border). You can resize the preview by pulling the bottom left corner.
Style the overall look of the chart by altering the options in the ‘Global Styles’ tab.
Note: Pie chart colours are generated automatically, these cannot be changed at this time.
To edit the information that will accompany the chart when sharing on social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.), select the ‘Social’ tab.
Share your visualisation or the entire dashboard using “Share” tab under “Dashboards”.
