HOW IT WORKS

How to make a pie chart

  1. Create a design
  2. Select 'Elements' tab
  3. Search 'Charts'
  4. Select 'Pie Chart'
  5. Add your data

What is a pie chart?

A pie chart, also known as a circle chart, is a circular diagram that resembles a pie. Each of the ‘slices’ represents a category of data that makes up the whole. Together, the pie represents 100 percent. The size of each ‘slice’ is relative to its portion of the whole. Pie charts can become overly complicated if there are too many categories of data being presented. A good pie chart should give information at a glance.

A donut chart or doughnut chart is a kind of pie chart that represents data in a ring rather than a circle. They serve the same function, so you can use them interchangeably depending on what look you prefer.
