Here's an example of how a pie chart could look in your personalized report:


Pie chart example



How do you build a pie chart?


Start by giving your pie chart a widget name and chart title.


Pie chart widget title


Now you have a few chart options so you can get the pie chart looking just the way you want.


Pie chart options


Show data point numbers - when it's turned off, the numbers for each section of the pie chart will not be shown.

Show chart as donut - turn this on and your pie chart will lose it's middle and look more like this donut!

Show chart in 3D - here's how your pie chart will look if you turn on 3D.


Time to build the pie chart itself! Click Add Data item and let's begin. For each section of the pie chart, there are 3 parts to specify.


Pie chart data items


  1. Data Label - give a name to the section of the pie chart. This name will be shown in the key under the pie chart.
  2. Data Color - choose the section color by clicking on the pencil. Take care to choose distinctly different colors for each section so the chart will be easy to read.
  3. Data Value - you can either type in a number or click Variables to access the drop-down menu of variables which you can use. Variables take the data entered during the survey and display it in the chart.


Click Add data item until you have added all the sections you want to include on the pie chart. 


Make sure to click save PDF and continue adding widgets. 


If you want to only show this widget under certain conditions, it's time to set the widget logic rules. Click add rule and now select which condition from the drop-down menu should be used to decide when to show the widget.



Once you've chosen the initial condition, you can specify exactly what conditions need to be met, for example the answer on question must be greater than a certain number. If you need a more complex condition, click on the white circle with a purple + sign to add criteria can be in addition to (AND) the other criteria, or instead of (OR).
