I am quite new to this platform and I haven't managed to get a powerapp to work using other info on the board, so I hope someone could give me a step by step walk-through
I have a list (let's call it "List1")
In there I have a number of columns
Title (not relevant for the pie chart)
Team (4 different teams)
Status (4 different project states)
I would like to generate a powerapp that create a pie graph with the # of items for each entry in "Team"
Pie chart: status.a =5 , status.b=10 etc
Do i need to create an extra column in the sharepoint list to do these calculations or can it be done through powerapps?
No, it's not necessary to add a new column in your SharePoint list.
We can use the GroupBy and Count functions in PowerApps to aggregate the values. The example here is a good place to start.
Hi @bh4 ,
What he said is right @timl .
You do not need to create another column.
I suggest you use GroupBy function.
In this function, you could group your table based on team.
Try this formula:
GroupBy(List1,"Team","the same team")
And then the items that have the same team will become the same group.
You just need to display pie chart based on the group one by one.
set the first pie chart's Items: //display data of team1
LookUp(GroupBy(List1,"Team","the same team"),Team="Team1").the same team
set the second pie chart's Items:
LookUp(GroupBy(List1,"Team","the same team"),Team="Team2").the same team
Here's a doc about groupby function for your reference:
Hi @v-yutliu-msft ,
thank you. How does the query know how to sort based on status? I cant see a status reference in the below function?
edit: the columns are "choice" type rather than plain text. could this interfere with the formula?
