Instead of using boring chart types, take a closer look at the progress chart. With its help, you can easily show your data. In the example, we will use a simple built-in chart template. The result – it’s based on a combo chart – displays the percentage completion towards a goal. The method is a little bit unusual, but it’s worth spending time on this.
To create the template, follow these simple steps. Insert a doughnut chart. Select the chart area and press Ctrl + C, then Ctrl + V. A new ring will appear. Split the chart into two parts. Use different colors for the inner and the outer ring. Apply the ‘No fill’ option to clean the chart. In this article, we’ll talk about the best charts to show % progress against a goal.
