Notes

The Doughnut with Total = 100 chart, also known as "Progress Doughnut Chart", is a very popular way to measure progress towards a goal or target.

This doughnut plot(with total =100) can be plotted from a value or a dataset/column, each selected value will be plotted into a separate circle as one wedge in percentage of the specified total value. To some extent, you could think that this kind of doughnut plot is a arc column/bar chart which shows the percentage of the task progress, relative to the whole task.

But for a general doughnut plot, each dataset/column will be plotted as a full circle with multiple wedges in percentage of the sum of the dataset/column.
