Pie charts

A pie (or a circle) chart is a statistical graphic that divides data into slices to illustrate numerical proportion. In a pie chart, the arc length of a slice is proportional to the quantity it represents.

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

How pie charts divide data

Pie 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 icon gear 10px > Settings > All labels.

Your search needs at least one attribute and one measure to be represented as a pie chart. Also, there must be fewer than 250 values in the attribute column.

Pie in pie charts

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

To see a pie in pie chart, assign two different measures to the Size section under Edit chart configuration icon gear 10px.
