First, I need to drag the doughnut widget from the “Proportion” section of the widget menu onto my dashboard. Then, I am going to resize it by dragging its edges so that it will be easy to read. This is what my doughnut widget looks like before I have assigned data to it.
Next, I am going to click the “Settings” button in the upper right corner of the widget. I would like my doughnut widget to display assist data for the World Cup, so I am going to click the “Properties” tab and rename my widget. I want my widget to show data for both teams and individual players (I can achieve this by using the multi-level drill down option, which we will explore later), so I will call it “Assists by Team and Player.”
Now, I am ready to assign data to my widget by clicking the “Assign Data” tab. If I would like to see teams’ assist data, I need to drag the “Assists” field to the “Values” box and the “TeamName” field to the “Columns” box.
After I drag the “TeamName” field to the “Columns” box, my widget is created, but it looks cluttered because it contains so much information. I will now customize the widget to make its data easier to read.
