If you create reports frequently, I bet you've used Pie Charts at some point.
Pie Charts aren't the best when it comes to data visualization, mainly because the human brain is not efficient at comparing the length of curved lines or internal angles of pies. Plus, it's tasking for the eye to jump quickly from the pie to the legend to connect each pie to its category.
When you need to compare the % share of different categories in a field, you might feel there's no other way than using a pie chart.In the previous tip, I shared one alternative to using Pie Charts, and here is a second, probably even better, alternative:
A 100% Stacked Single Horizontal Bar
This single bar chart is very useful when you don't have much vertical space on your report canvas.
Believe it or not, the trickiest part is adding the Dimension title on the left!
