Properties for Pie-Type Charts

Important: When referencing this page outside of Knowledge Base, use this link: https://knowledge.domo.com?cid=pieproperties

Intro

Refer to this topic to find information about chart properties available for Pie-type charts, such as those for configuring value formatting, sorting, Funnel options, and so on.

"General" Properties

The properties in the following table are found in the General category in Chart Properties.

Option

Description

Examples

Maximum Slices Before Other

Determines the number of slices in a Pie or Donut chart that are represented as unique slices—all remaining slices in the chart are aggregated into an "Other" slice.

In the first example at right, the user entered "6" as the Maximum Slices Before Other value; therefore, the first six slices appear as unique slices, and the remaining slices are grouped into an "Other" slice. In the second example, the user mouses over the "Other" slice, and the legend updates to show the items that have been grouped into that slice. In addition, the total and percentage for the combined "Other" items appears next to the pie.

Maximum Items Before Other

Determines the number of squares in a Tree Map that are represented as unique squares—all remaining squares in the chart are aggregated into an "Other" square. In the example at right, the user entered "8" as the Maximum Items Before Other value; therefore, the first eight squares appear as unique squares, and the remaining squares are grouped into an "Other" square.

Value Format

Determines whether currency symbols are appended to values in Pie and Donut charts.

Value Decimal Places

Determines the number of decimal places in values in Pie and Donut charts.

Percent Value Decimal Places

Determines the number of decimal places in percent values in Pie and Donut charts and Tree Maps.

Display in Legend

In Pie and Donut charts, allows you to choose whether the legend values are represented as values (as in your DataSet) or as percentages. 

 

Hide Pie Labels 

Determines whether labels appear for pie slices in the Details view for a Pie chart.


 

Unsorted Data

Determines whether or not the slices in a Pie chart are automatically sorted from highest to lowest value. By default, in a Pie chart, slices are arranged from highest value to lowest value. In this situation, you cannot change the sort order by selecting different options in the Sorting menu. However, if you check the Unsorted Data box, you can use Sorting to change the sort order. For more information, see Sorting the Data in Your Chart.


 

Legend Percentage

Lets you specify how legend percentages in Funnel graphs are derived. When Percent of Total is selected, the percentage for each funnel slice is derived from the chart total, much like a Pie chart. When Percent of Previous (default) is selected, the percentage for each slice is derived from the value of the slice above it. The Percent of Previous option is appropriate for conversion funnel charts in which you want to show the percent of change between successive layers.

The two example screenshots at right compare these two types of Funnel charts. The first screenshot shows a chart in which Percent of Total is used. The percentage shown for each layer is derived from the total chart value. The second screenshot shows a chart in which Percent of Previous is used. The percentage shown for each layer is derived from the value of the previous layer. 

"Legend" Properties

The properties in the following table are found in the Legend category in Chart Properties.

Option Description Examples
Hide Legend When this option is selected, no legend appears next to your Pie or Donut graph. The example shows a Pie graph in which the legend has been hidden.

Display in Legend

Determines whether values from your DataSet display as literal values or as their corresponding percentages in your Pie graph. For example, a value from your DataSet might be "26" but take up 35.9% of the pie. Therefore, if you selected Value Only for this property, the legend item would read "26," and if you selected Percentage, the legend item would read "35.9%." If you selected No Label, only the name of each slice would appear in the legend. 

"Hover Legend" Properties

The properties in the following table are found in the Hover Legend category in Chart Properties.

Option

Description

Examples

Hide Legend

When this option is selected, the "hover legend," which normally appears when you mouse over a slice in your Pie or Donut graph, is hidden from view. 

Title Text

Lets you customize the summary text that appears above your Pie or Donut graph's hover legend area (which normally reads "Total").

The example shows a Pie graph in which this text has been customized to read "Sum of Amount."

Title Value

Lets you specify an aggregation type for the summary value in your Pie or Donut graph's hover legend. By default all of the data in your graph is totaled, but you can change this to show the average, minimum, or maximum amount in the graph.

Hide Percent Value

When this option is selected, the percent of total value that appears when you mouse over a slice in your Pie or Donut chart does not appear.

"Legend" Properties

The properties in the following table are found in the Legend category in Chart Properties.

Option Description Examples
Hide Legend When this option is selected, no legend appears next to your Pie or Donut graph. The example shows a Pie graph in which the legend has been hidden.

Display in Legend

Determines whether values from your DataSet display as literal values or as their corresponding percentages in your Pie graph. For example, a value from your DataSet might be "26" but take up 35.9% of the pie. Therefore, if you selected Value Only for this property, the legend item would read "26," and if you selected Percentage, the legend item would read "35.9%." If you selected No Label, only the name of each slice would appear in the legend. 

"Hover Legend" Properties

The properties in the following table are found in the Hover Legend category in Chart Properties.

Option

Examples

Hide Legend

When this option is selected, the "hover legend," which normally appears when you mouse over a slice in your Pie or Donut graph, is hidden from view. 

Title Text

Lets you customize the summary text that appears above your Pie or Donut graph's hover legend area (which normally reads "Total").

The example shows a Pie graph in which this text has been customized to read "Sum of Amount."

Title Value

Lets you specify an aggregation type for the summary value in your Pie or Donut graph's hover legend. By default all of the data in your graph is totaled, but you can change this to show the average, minimum, or maximum amount in the graph.

Hide Percent Value

When this option is selected, the percent of total value that appears when you mouse over a slice in your Pie or Donut chart does not appear.

"Data Label Settings" Properties

The properties in the following table are found in the Data Label Settings category in Chart Properties.

Option

Description

Examples

Hide Labels

Hides the labels that normally appear on the slices in your Pie graph.

The example shows a Pie graph in which labels have been hidden.

Text

Specifies text to replace the default text in labels in Pie graphs. The example at right shows a Pie graph in which the user has implemented a macro to show the value for each state. For more information about creating data label text, including a list of available macros, see Formatting Data Label and Hover Text in Your Chart.

Font Size Lets you increase or decrease the font size for the labels in your Pie graph. If you choose the default setting ("Auto"), an optimal font size for your labels is determined based on the amount of space in each slice.

"Label Settings" Properties (Tree Maps only)

The properties in the following table are found in the Label Settings category in Chart Properties.

Option

Description

Examples

Position

Determines the position of labels in Tree Maps.

Text

Specifies text to replace the default text in Tree Maps. The example at right shows a Tree Map in which the user has implemented a macro to show the value for each state.
