Donut Chart - Not Showing Each Data Point

Hi, 

 

I've created a donut chart to show the number of days my company's current projects have been active. There are 14 total projects running currently. There are two projects that began the same day - let's call them A and B. The donut chart is not showing A and B individually, and is instead lumping them together (see below).

 

The problem with this is when I scroll over to see the Tooltips, it only shows the name of Project A. When I try to do a distinct count, it completely eliminates one of the projects, showing a (1) next to the 14 on the donut chart. 

 

Any help would be much appreciated!

 

Best,

Christina

Re: Donut Chart - Not Showing Each Data Point

Aha,  That will be why it is combining them.  Because they happen to have the same number of days and that is what you are charting.  

 

Try adding the Project name to the legend

Re: Donut Chart - Not Showing Each Data Point

Do your two projects share the same name?  Are they both called 14?

Re: Donut Chart - Not Showing Each Data Point

Hi Phil, 

 

No, they have different names. The 14 in the middle of the donut is a card showing the count of active projects. The donut itself shows the number of days each of the projects have been active - Project A and B have both been active for 14 days.

 

In the capture below, I scrolled over one of the projects that has been active for 98 days. The name of the project is listed under First Search. I noticed that the Tooltips will only allow me to select the first or last search/project to display, but not all (which would solve my problem of not having a distinct record in the donut for Projects A and B). 

 

Hope that makes sense!
