When you add a modern page to a site, you add and customize web parts, which are the building blocks of your page. This article describes the Quick chart web part.

Note: Some functionality is introduced gradually to organizations that have opted in to the Targeted Release program. This means that you may not yet see this feature or it may look different than what is described in the help articles.

Pie chart and Column chart examples.

Use the Quick chart web part to add simple, basic charts to your page. Enter your data points or get data from a list or library, add labels, pick your chart type (column or pie), and publish.
