I was able to get the 2010 Chart Web Part to "work" in SharePoint 2013, but I'm having an issue getting the charts to work the way I want them to.

I'm trying to create a pie chart that shows the percentage of tasks that are in a certain status (open, not started, in progress, etc.). However, the chart seems to be taking each task INDIVIDUALLY and giving it a piece of the chart. So, right now I just have a chart that says Not Started over and over again (there are over 100 tasks, so there's not actually room to include all of them).

I connected the chart to the appropriate list and made the Y field Total and the X field Status. I'm really not sure what I need to do, at this point, to make it work properly.

    Microsoft did hide/remove the web part for a reason. Mayby if you export the list to an Excel sheet and create a pivot there and then upload/embed the excel to the page instead? Jul 13, 2017 at 11:26
  • Nevron Chart for SharePoint is a pretty simple way to make charts - support.nevron.com/KB/a166/…

I think you need to use a different approach.

Try use CSOM to read the data from lists and Chart.js to create the graphs.
