In a pie chart, your data is divided into different sections that look like slices of a large area. Now let's see how to create a pie chart in Google Docs. We have also included many tips for modifying your pie charts.

How to insert pie charts in Google Docs

There are two ways to add a pie chart in Google Docs. First, you can create a new pie chart directly from Google Docs or add an existing pie chart from Google Sheets. If you use the first method, a new worksheet is created to add data.

1. Create a new pie chart

Here are the steps for the same thing:

Step 1: Open the Google Docs document where you want to add a pie chart to your PC.

Note: You can not add pie charts to Google Docs mobile apps.

2nd step: Click Insert, and then click Chart. Then select Pie from the menu.

Pie chart showing all the labels?

If your pie chart has skipped a dataset, it may be 0 or negative. So avoid such values.

Limit yourself

Pie charts are great tools for presenting your data to all kinds of people, especially those who want to understand the situation in a visual way instead of checking the numbers. Many values ​​or rows are not well reflected in pie charts. For this, you need to consider other types of graphics that you can add and edit in the same way when using Google Docs.

Then: Google Docs is not limited to graphics. You can even create a timeline. Here is a guide that explains how to create calendars in Docs.
