Chart Web Part and SharePoint 2013

Written By: High Monkey

(From the mind of Peter Serzo, Previously VP of Consulting Services at High Monkey)

The Chart Web Part (as I read somewhere and echo this sentiment) is one of the golden nuggets of SharePoint 2010.  It is a GREAT web part to get your clients into doing BI.  It's simple, has a wizard, and works with a multitude of data sources.

Then Microsoft pulled the rug out and it is GONE from SharePoint 2013!  But not really.  See how to get it back in this simple blog post. Here are the steps:

1. You need the chart.webpart file.  There are two ways to get this.  One is to download it from my blog here.  Rename the downloaded file to "Chart" then go to Step 2.

The other way is to export the web part from a SharePoint 2010 enterprise install.

If you need to export the web part, the first thing you need to do is enable the web part to export.  Do this by editing the web part.  Change the Export mode to Export all data.

This will now present you with the ability to export the web part.

2. The next step is to go into your 2013 environment and upload the web part.

You do this through the Browse and upload.  Once the web part is put on the page it looks just like it should.  See this in my 365 instance!

This works great, the web part works great in SharePoint 2013.  Put it to work!
