All of this can be done. However, it will be quite manual. To move the labels inside each slice, you can literally drag and drop it. In order to display a label with an arrow, right click on the slice and select Annotate>Mark... Then, you can format the annotation to display the arrow as you want.
Hope this helps!
Thank you Tracy, yes your suggestions do seem to work ... and yes, very manual.
Anyone know if any enhancments are on the roadmap that might enable Tableau to better present labels?
I don't know of any particular enhancements, however, if your slices are that thin then there are probably more useful means of displaying your data than pie charts. Here are a couple of posts from the last couple of days on this very subject:
I am having this same issue and have manually dragged my labels inside of the pie chart (2-3 slices for the pie plenty of room for the labels). I have several different retailers and when I change the retailer selection the labels move back outside of the chart. I've gone though and manually moved them for each retailer and it appears to be fixed while working inside of tableau. However, when I publish it on the server the same issue comes back. Please help.

I understand this is an old post and someone might have figured out a solution already. However I'm adding the solution I found so it might be helpful to others.
1. Create the pie chart you want.
2. Double click in the columns shelf and enter 0. It will be visible as Sum(0). Enter another 0 in the columns shelf again. Now you should get 2 pie charts side-by-side.
3. Select Dual Axis option.
4. In the marks shelf, select 2nd pie chart (named automatically as Sum(0) (2).
5. Remove fields from size, if any.
6. Reduce the size of this second pie chart using the slider.
You will get the label of second chart inside the pie chart. You can adjust the position by adjusting the size.
Hope this helps,
Not able to achieve this Can someone help me here?
Hi, how do you select "Dual Axis" option? I couldn't find it.
Perfect, thank you!
To get rid of the lines, right click on the white space, then format, and then these options (I don't exactly remember which one): "Format borders" or "format lines"
Try changing the Rows and columns lines
For the color scheme, I usually just leave one pill with color, not both; as I only need one pill for the labels.
Just note that the inner circle is the second pill.
Life saver for me. Thank you!!
