Change the type of a chart

You can change the type of a chart in the display area of a dashboard.

The following example describes how to change a pie chart to a radar chart.

  1. Select the target pie chart in the display area of the dashboard.
  2. In the upper-right corner of the page, click Change Chart Type.

    Click the Radar Chart icon.

  3. The pie chart changes to a radar chart.

If the fields of the current chart do not match those of the target chart, the change fails. You must manually adjust fields before you change the chart type.

The system provides instructions to help you adjust fields based on the current and target chart types. Follow the instructions to add appropriate dimensions or measures to the corresponding areas.
