Please note that you will need to go into your Data Source and make sure that Community visualizations access is switched on.

Without confirming this for your data source you will not be able to use these great visualizations.

Radar Chart

This chart from ClickInsight is really nice and easy to customize. You can choose several metrics and one dimension.

Below I have various Google Analytics metrics creating a pentagon shape with the different continents being the dimension.

Below is a radar chart with just three metrics and the dimension has been changed to device category. So it becomes a triangle instead of a pentagon.

SunBurst Chart

This chart from r42 Communications is a nice elegant way of showing how two dimensions related to each other.

Here I used Device Category and Default Channel Grouping data from Google Analytics.

Word Cloud chart (Vega)

Another cool new visualization is a ‘word cloud’ chart that displays the dimensions as words. It is called ‘Vega/Vega-Lite’ and was created by Jerry Chen.

Below I have a chart that shows all the different Sources of sessions. I then use a standard filter to filter by default Channel Grouping. You can see that the word cloud adjusts based on which Channel is selected.
