Dynamic Word Charts
It is useful to re-use templates and just connect them to a different (similar) datasource. However depending on the values, charts can stop displaying properly. Legends may get cut-off for example.
It would be nice if charts were smarter and automatically adjusted to new data.
We have made some significant updates to our charting code in the 16.3.0 release. I will decline this request since without templates to work off of it is difficult for us to improve charting support. That being said, if you have any problems with charts, please submit a ticket for our support team who can determine if what you are experiencing is a bug and get the functionality fixed in development this way. Thank you, and please submit any other ideas you might have for our consideration in development.

My name is Adam Jackson and I'm a Product Manager with Windward. Thank you for submitting your idea.
We believe this is a limitation of Office and that some charts simply do not have auto-adjust. Can you send our Support team a few example templates that include charts meeting the case you defined? We'll take a look to determine if there's anything we can do on our end. Thanks!
