If you are analyzing how your individual values equate to the total result, Explore offers visualization that can help you easily display your data. For example, you can use these charts to evaluate which groups are solving the most tickets or what combination of values is producing the highest numbers.
Pie charts can be constructed in two ways:
- A metric broken down by category results (attributes).
- Multiple metrics making up a natural whole combined metric. For example, percentage share and an overall total.
Pie charts work best when displaying a relatively small number of results, but you can still display several results in a simple way using the available customization options.
One option is to add a color legend in Chart configuration > Displayed values, then select Display color legend. The color legend will display all of your added attribute values, and enable you to view individual value results by hovering over the label.
You can also apply a top/bottom filter to limit results to the largest ones. This filter can also combine smaller results into a single segment, so your percentage share and total figures will remain in the same view.
If you would like to see several results at the same time, a treemap or bar chart might be a better approach.
- In Chart, you can check Combined metric to create a doughnut view. A doughnut view segments your pie chart, so all metrics are divided by every value. An empty circle will appear in the middle of the chart.
- In Colors, you can change the background and chart colors.
- If you want to display your results as percentages, you can change your value options in Display format > Edit displayed values. You can also change label position, style, and display a color legend in Displayed values.
A sunburst chart is a combination of a pie chart and a treemap. Results are segmented by category and displayed in a hierarchy. If you have several results, the labels for smaller values might not appear on your chart. Like a pie chart, the top/bottom filter can be used to aggregate these smaller results.
- In Colors, you can select a predefined color palette to represent your categories and subcategories.
- In Chart, you can select whether to show or hide metric aggregators in your datatips, by toggling the Show aggregators check box.
