Panels > Pie Chart
A pie chart is a circular statistical graphic with slices that are proportional to the quantity they represent. In a pie chart, the arc length of each slice (and consequently its central angle and area) is proportional to the quantity it represents.
It’s typically used to illustrate percentages or proportional data, often accompanied by percentage labels next to each slice. Pie charts are most effective when depicting data with roughly five categories or fewer.
To create the Pie chart
(Refer to Dashboard Creation > Query)
On the right side of the default screen, select Visualization as Pie Chart to create an Pie Chart panel.
There are multiple options for editing the properties of the panel. The first one is ‘Panel Options.’ Enter a name and description for the panel you want to create. For example, if you’re creating a pie chart to track power usage, name the panel ‘Pie Chart’ and describe it as ‘Power Usage.’
The Description is available in the top left corner and can be viewed by hovering over the i button.
The next part of Panel Options is Panel Link where you can point a link to any other website or dashboard of your choice. Enter a title, and URL, and select the ‘Open in a new Tab’ option if you want to open the link in a new tab. Click Save.
The URL can be a link to another dashboard or for getting help or useful info. When you click on a panel, it opens the link either in the same tab or a new tab, depending on your choices. For example, if you want to compare a default dashboard, just click the link to open it.
Use the following options to refine the value in your panel.
Choose how much information to show:
It limits the number of values displayed, instead of all the series values.
Select which field or fields to display in the panel. Each field name is available on the list, or you can select one of the following options:
The pie chart options allow you to configure the pie chart display settings and include:
Select the pie chart display style.
Select labels to display on the pie chart. You can select more than one.
The following section is Tooltip which means showing the data information when the cursor is pointed at it.
It can be kept as single, all or hidden based on whether you want to see data information by hovering over the pie chart.
The next option is the “Legend,” which essentially allows you to choose how you want the legend values to appear: at the bottom or on the right.
As for the Legend mode, you can show it as:
You can select a number of values such as percent or values to show in the legend.
The values are the specific properties of the data.
The corresponding properties of the data will be displayed as a legend in the graph.
The Standard Options are used to configure the other standard settings in the graph. It changes the way the graph appears.
The further options include:
The Value Mappings option allows you to find a specific value, and the display text is displayed wherever the value lies. If there is a similar value in the data, it is highlighted in the form of the color selected.
The Data Links option is similar to the Panel Link where you can link a URL and then open it in another tab. It is placed on the data instead of the Panel.
You can click on the data anywhere and the link option will appear.
It is used for an instant link that you want to appear anytime you click on the data.
The Add field Override option allows you to override an existing field.
Overrides allow you to change the settings for one or more fields. Field options for overrides are the same as the field options available in a particular visualization. The only difference is that you choose which fields to apply them to.
To add a field override, click on the Add Field Override button.
Select the Field type
Select a field type, based on the following properties:
You can add multiple fields overrides by repeating the same.
You have now learned how to configure the Pie Chart, change the panel settings, and more. You can save and edit the panel later too.
