Currently, result path calculation allows "% of Total" and "Running Total", but does not allow "Running Total %". This functionality - expressing the running total as % of total items - is vital for the creation of pareto charts.
Below is an example of a pareto chart from Wikipedia. You can see that the line uses a running total of the items expressed in the columns, and it's measured using % axis on the right representing percent of total items.
Below is a MS Paint mockup explaining further how this differs from the current features. "A" shows the current "Running Total" feature (note the axis on the right is not a percentage of the total, but a count). "B" shows the current "% of Total" feature (note that the line does not show a running total, even though the axis measurement shows a percentage of the total). What I need is "C": a running total as a % of total lines, or cumulative percentage.
This request comes from a Q&A post where it was determined that this was not possible using the current functionality: see https://support.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/1260800839689-Running-Total-as-for-Pareto-Chart
