I have a pie chart representing education completed of a list of people. But this layout is nonsense. Pie charts should always be sorted in order of proportion - highest to lowest, starting at 12 o’clock. Is there a way to change this so it’s properly designed?
Hi there @Dimitri_Zakharov
You should be able to sort that pie chart using
Sort menu, to the right of
Options and select the appropriate field there to do so (or create one if necessary).
But how do you sort by the total count of each category? This is a multiple select column. If I sort by it, it just orders them alphabetically. That’s not what I want.
Would you mind sharing a sample doc with us ?
It’s hard to say if it’s actually doable with just a chart. It was just a suggestion seeing there was no sorting applied to your chart .
Can’t share but build any table with a text column that’s multi select, randomly enter text options, then try to sort by count largest to smallest.
Something like this ?
I didn’t use a strict multi-select though but created one using another table and a
Lookup field which act as a multi-select
Ok, so I guess I need to create an inverted table to do this count by category. Thanks.
You’re welcome !
There might be others ways to get to that count but it really depends on how you build your doc .
This is to me, the easiest way to do so (without any knowledge of your setup )
