Funnel Charts are being used to show the reduction of a some subject amount – usually sales, percent of customers or something like that. Each Funnel is built from blocks, where a block means a part of a process, and the value each block represents is less than the previous block value. So, if the situation is opposite and the value grows up than this chart becomes a singular funnel or a pyramid.
This example demonstrates the recruiting process in a some company. First of all, there are 100% of applicants; then a part of them are not being invited to the first interview by HR, so there are only 70% of them are left; the next step is testing all applicants for their level of knowledge and qualification, and there are only 57% of all applicants who reached this step. The next level is revealing some extra information about all applicants who are still being considered – only 38% in our case. The last step is an interview with the Head of the company or a department, where 5% of the left 15% are eliminated, so only 10% of all receives a job offer.
This Chart has a legend on, so you can manage the chart performance by using legend items. Click on them to select the funnel blocks of hover to highlight the last ones. You may also notice that in this example we have formatted the tooltips so they show percents.
