Donut Multiples Chart Options

This page describes the options for editing donut multiples charts in the visualization menu. This menu can be accessed by clicking the gear in the upper right corner of the visualization tab.Please note that some of the options listed below may be grayed out or hidden in situations where they would conflict with other settings you have chosen.

Plot Menu Options

Value Labels

Value Labels toggles the appearance of value labels for each data point on a chart.

Series Label Size

Series Label Size changes the font size of the labels that appear in the middle of each donut multiple.

Number of Charts per Row

Number of Charts per Row defines the maximum number of donuts that will appear in a single row of the donut multiple chart. If this parameter is not set, the default value is 3.

Hide Legend

Hide Legend toggles the appearance of the series legend on a chart. This is only available when there is more than one series (except in the case of a pie chart).

Series Menu Options


The Colors section enables you to define the default color scheme for a chart.

Using a Predefined Color Scheme

The Colors dropdown menu enables you to choose from Analytis' pre-defined color options. Analytics includes color palettes for a variety of use cases, such as highlighting differences, showcasing a progression, serving a color-blind audience, and so forth.

Colors will be assigned to each series in order. The first series in the underlying data will be assigned the first color, and so on. If the query returns more data series than colors listed, the colors will repeat from the beginning of the list.

Creating a Custom Color Scheme

To create a custom color scheme, you can either:

  1. Click on one of the colors present to edit it.
  2. Click the + or - buttons below the color palette to add a color to the end of the palette or remove a selected color.
  3. Click EDIT ALL at the bottom right of the menu to use a comma-separated list of color values.

Clicking on one of the colors already present, or clicking the "+" button, will bring up a color picker that you can use to select a color. The corresponding hex value for that color will also be displayed at the bottom of the color picker:

Alternatively, you can input a list of CSS or hex colors by first clicking on the "#" button:

You can input a list of hex strings, such as #2ca6cd, or CSS named color strings, such as mediumblue.

You'll notice that the the text box will be populated with the hex codes of any color scheme you've already chosen or customized. Copying and pasting this list is the best way to copy custom color schemes from one visualization to another.


Each series in the chart can be customized in several different ways:

  1. Click the arrow next to a series to expand its options.
  2. Click on the color swatch to select a custom color for the series. This will override the color palette defined by the Colors option.
  3. Enter a custom series label if desired. This will impact the chart legend and tooltips.
