What is a pie chart?
A pie chart is a circular chart that resembles a pie. It is divided into slices to illustrate numerical proportions. The size of each slice is relative to its portion of the whole. A pie chart always represents 100%. Pie charts work best for 6 slices or fewer otherwise, they become hard to read and understand. Like any data visualization, a pie chart should give information at a glance.
A donut chart, or doughnut chart, is an alternative of the pie chart, with a blank circle in the center, allowing for an additional label to be included. Just like a pie chart, a donut chart shows proportions. You can use both interchangeably. Pie charts and donut charts are widely used in business presentations and reports.

Pie Chart: What's new?
Easier number formatting through some changes in the user interface. Showing and hiding values is possible in the same place as you format them.
We cleaned up the UI and put more focus on the most important features.
We fixed a bug that made grouping slices to an “Other” category not possible when you migrated from another chart to a pie chart.
We further improved the automated label positioning for the pie chart! Especially multi-line labels benefit from that and don’t overlap.
NEW You can now quickly group slices in one bigger “Other” slice to make your chart easier to read.
