A pie chart is a circular graph that shows the relative contribution that different categories contribute to an overall total. A wedge of the circle represents each category’s contribution, such that the graph resembles a pie that has been cut into different-sized slices. The chart has its legend panel on its right side to help you correlate the visuals with the data set. The legend panel also shows the value and percentage of each section of the pie. On hovering over a particular section of a chart also shows its value and percentage share in the chart.

The Legend panel is visible upfront in all the chart size .

The Pie chart is available for multiple analytics components such as Pivot Table, Analytics Builder etc.
