Pie Charts bug? Every series is an [unnamed series]?

edited 04/29/22 in Smartsheet Basics

Why is this pie chart broken? What is [unnamed series]? It should be "Executive Team" and "Vertical Construction" as the series.

This bug has existed since 2018 and it there doesn't seem to be any solutions.

How do I fix this?

    To get meaningful pie chart data, will I need to export my sheet via the API, process it in PHP, and then embed a pie chart via the web? That seems ludicrous.

    When you first add the chart widget, you should see an option to Use First Column as Series Labels. See if that is on and checked.

    Please let me know if it checked and you are still not seeing the series.

    Thank you,


    Happy to help if I can.
