Pie Charts Need Help

Bar charts and pie charts are just too complicated to use and they don't work as expected. For instance, a pie chart, by it's very nature, shows grouped data as a percent of the whole. However, when you add a pie chart control it doesn't automatically "group" the series' in order to show percent of the whole. See screen shots below.

 

A very smart techician figured out a work around (here), but my idea is.....just let the pie chart, be a pie chart, and just do it by default. 🙂

To add further clarification on this ask: I would like to see consistentcy across the data apps: What a pie chart does out of the box in PowerBI, should be very similar to what it does out of the box in Excel, and what it does out of the box in Power Apps too. (In every case, the end user can change the properties to make something unique to his use case happen.) This helps us to build upon what we know already instead of having to learn an old topic all over again. I love that Power BI ADDS to what a pie chart can do, but I don't like that Power Apps has it's own understanding of what a Pie chart should do--making my easy tasks a lot harder to finish.
