Use donut charts to compare values for items in a dimension. The best use for this type of chart is to show a percentage of a total amount.

Each wedge in a donut chart represents one value in a dimension. The size of the wedge represents the proportion of the value for the selected measure that the item represents compared to the whole for the dimension. Donut charts are best when precision isn't important and there are few items in the dimension.

Donut charts show up to 20 data points for group or color. For more information about how Insights handles data that falls outside display limits, see the “Display limits” section in Visual types in Insights.

Procedure

Create a donut chart

  1. Click Visualize (the bar chart icon in the tool bar). The Visuals panel opens.
  2. Click Add.
  3. Click the Donut chart icon.

  4. Drag a dimension from the Data panel into the Group/Color field well.
  5. (Optional) To display the division of dimension values by a metric value, drag a measure into the Value field well.
  6. (Optional) To add drill-down layers, drag at least one more field from the Data panel into the Group/Color field wells. For more information about adding drill-downs, see Adding drill-downs to visual data in Insights.
