Figured out how to show percentages on pie charts

Hey guys, after searching high and low through the pie chart settings and giving up on creating separate columns showing percentages to use as the values, i discovered how to do it. 

 

If, when you choose the values to use, if you open the drop down and select quick calc and where it says 'Show Values as' select % of Grand Total, it'll use the % of the total as the value, and if you choose to show value as the data label, it'll show the percent. 

 

The only issue i've been able to find with it, is that if you hover over that section of the chart, it won't tell you the actual value, just the percentage. but hey, so did creating a column of percentages and using that as the value.

This was made with our Custom Visual creator tool PBIVizEdit.com. With this tool,

  • anyone, irrespective of technical skills, can create their own visuals
  • 15 minutes to create a visual from scratch
  • opens up many additional attributes to edit (for e.g. labels, tooltips, legends position, etc)

Give this a shot and let us know if you face any problem/errors.

You can use the editor to modify your visual further (some modifications cannot be done in Power BI window and have to be in editor).

Thanks,

Team PBIVizEdit.

This looks much easier now.

 

On the "Format" tab under "Detail Labels" there are various options to include percentages.

That's I was looking for, thank you!

Yes! This last message is exactly the one I needed. Talk about counter-intuitive - specify what shows up in the label under "Label style"??? Thanks!

Thanks for that.

In addition, if you drop the value field in the tool tips of the chart, it will show the actual value as well
