What Is A Bubble Chart
Bubble chart shows the data by bubbles in different sizes and position, while colors can be used to represent different categories. As they are drawn in the same scale, we can clearly see the trend of specific issues over time.
When To Use Doughnut Chart
When there are more than 3 sets of data is going to show in a chart, then bubble chart will be a good choice for you. As they are shown as a bubble instead of a point or column, it will be difficult to read the exact value easily. Therefore, we use bubble chart in case that we focus on the trend or relationship instead of the exact value.
How To Create A Doughnut Chart
By Edit Data under Panel-Chart, we can open the spreadsheet of the chart.
You can edit the data directly, import from Excel or link the spreadsheet with Google Sheet.
As the bubbles are representing 3 data by its size and position, we can change the data directly by moving and resizing the bubbles.
