Formatting questions for pie chart in Cognos 11.1 R6 dashboard

  • 1.  Formatting questions for pie chart in Cognos 11.1 R6 dashboard

    Posted 26 days ago
    Hi everyone, I have some questions around formatting a pie chart in a dashboard I created that looks like this:
    1. Instead of showing the legend, I'd like to show the segment/series name above each of the percentage values. Is there a way to do that?
    2. How can I change the formatting of the percentage values to no decimals?
    3. When I view this dashboard in the Chrome browser, the percentage values are not showing. When I view it in I.E. v11, I see them. Why the difference between browsers?

    Thanks so much for any responses! Regards, Mel Alberti

    Hi Melody,

    I have no R11.1.6 environment for testing but in R11.1.7 there's an option for pie charts for the labels:


    I have no idea for your second point and the last one seems to be a bug which I can also reproduce with IE and Firefox+Chrome. I suggest to create a support ticket @IBM.

    Thanks SO much Robert! Looks like that "Item label format" setting was added in R7 as it's missing from my view in R6:

    I will definitely get the IBM support ticket created for the bug between the I.E. and Chrome browsers. I may create a 2nd support ticket to ask about changing the formatting of the percentage values.

    Best regards, Mel
