    Newbie Question about Data Visualization




      I'm new to Tableau, and have a question about how to represent data in what I don't think would be an unusual way, but I haven't been able to figure it out on my own.


      I have a variable used to represent the status of a machine: 1 = Automatic Mode, 2 = Manual Mode, 3 = Error Mode, etc. This value changes to indicate the mode the machine is in. The value is read every 15 seconds.


      I would like to represent the value's records as a pie chart to indicate the percent of records (and therefore percent of time spent) in each of the three states.


      Is there a way to do this? This is the farthest I've been able to get on my own: https://imgur.com/XaVpFSe . This is the general idea, but no need to show each record individually, and having a number to quantify the percentage of records of each value would be very useful.
