Collaboran Tomaž Vajngerl has blogged about his work on Pivot charts in LibreOffice, funded for by Nantes Métropole and Ville de Nantes in France. Check it out!
Pivot tables are a powerful tool to reorganise, manipulate and summarise the data set in spreadsheets to get the valuable information from it. To get a quick visual representation of the information, pivot charts can be used. A pivot chart can be created from the output of the pivot tables, and if the pivot table gets changed, so does the pivot chart.
Support for pivot tables in LibreOffice is available for a long time, but there was no support for pivot charts until now. For the past week I was working on pivot charts in a feature branch (feature/pivotcharts) and I got to a first milestone. Pivot charts will be released in LibreOffice 5.4.
