Donut charts

The donut chart is a classic chart type that displays your search in a circle. The default donut chart in ThoughtSpot displays data in the shape of a thick ring.

How donut charts divide data

Donut charts divide your data into sectors that each represent a proportion of a whole circle. To display the exact values of each slice and the percentage values, select the Chart configuration icon Chart configuration icon image > Settings > All labels.

Donut chart example

Your search needs at least one attribute and one measure to be represented as a donut chart. Also, there must be fewer than 50 values in the attribute column.

Pie in donut charts

The pie in donut chart can be created from a regular donut chart in order to compare more than one component of an attribute. Pie in donut charts show two concentric pie charts comparing different measures.

To see a pie in donut chart, assign two different measures to the Size section under Edit chart configuration Chart configuration icon image.
