Funnel and pyramid reports

Funnel and pyramid reports visualize the distribution of data. The size of the slices or sections represents a percentage of the total of all values.

Funnel reports are often used to represent stages in a sales process (from lead to closed deal), or to identify potential problem areas in a process. If you apply a neck in a funnel chart, all values below a certain percentage of the total value are represented as a bar. The bar indicates that their differences are of equal importance.

Funnel reports stack slices from top to bottom by decreasing percentage and pyramid charts stack slices by increasing percentage. Pyramid reports are often used to represent hierarchical levels in an organization. Funnel and pyramid reports can be placed on homepages where users can quickly interpret the information displayed.

For example, use a funnel or pyramid report to show open incidents by priority. At any time, there are open incidents of different priority levels. For example, an organization has a policy that P1 incidents can never exceed 40% of all open incidents. Funnel and pyramid charts show whether incident counts are within acceptable ranges.
