Multiple Values in a Pie Chart

How can I get two columns to display in a pie chart value?
My assumption is Beast Mode but I am unsure of how that would be done.

For example, if I have a Maintenance Column and a Disruption Column how would I combine those into one function so it can be displayed?

    Are you looking to have two separate values for Maintenance and Disruption and have them both displayed? Pie charts only support 1 value at a time.

    If you want to combine them, you can do a beast mode that is SUM(IFNULL(Maintenance, 0) + IFNULL(Disruption, 0)) and then add that to the pie chart.

    Are those two columns mutually exclusive? Is it ever the case that both columns will have values in the same row? If not, then you can use: IFNULL(`Maintenance`,`Disruption`)

    If there are cases where both columns could have a value on the same row, then I would suggest appending your data in ETL so that both columns are stacked ontop of each other and then the new single column can be used (if that makes sense, I don't know the details of your data)

    You can also combine the Tootip Field and the datalabel settings to display multiple values. However, the Pie value will only take the first into account.

  • @Mirnes, @trafalger is correct that pie charts can only display one value at a time. If you want to be able to switch back and forth between values, you can do that using Variables.

    Ty all for the speedy feedback. I will attempt this and see which one works for me better.
