Plot Options

Pie and donut charts charts can be created via the PAGE ELEMENTS section of your workbook's editor panel or directly from an existing data element

Required Fields

  • COLOR (1 column)
  • VALUE (1+ columns)
    Columns added to the VALUE field are aggregated by default. Aggregation type (e.g. Sum vs Count) is dependent on the original column’s value type (e.g. text, number, date, etc).
    For example, a numeric column such as 'Sales Amount' will create a new calculated column, 'Sum of Sales Amount' (e.g. Sum([Sales Amount])).

Marks

  • TOOLTIP: choose columns to show when hovering over points in the chart
  • TRELLIS: select columns to serve as Trellis Rows or Columns, splitting the chart into separate charts 

Format Options

To begin editing a visualization's format options, select the visualization to open its editor panel view. Then click the paint brush icon at the top of the editor panel.
