You can easily change the legend colors in a chart.
Estimated reading time: 1 minute

To change the colors used in a chart, you can use the color picker from the chart. The color you set is used in:

  • legends on charts
  • tables for conditional formatting
  • tags and editing the colors

To change the chart colors, you need at least one column in the chart’s legend. If the chart does not have a legend (not all do) and it is a single-measure chart, you can apply a conditional format to change the color. This type of conditional formatting does not work with Line charts.

Colors are maintained across searches within a session. For example, when doing a search on revenue by state, each state will keep its color assigned to it even if you change the search or chart type.

Add a column to the legend

  1. While viewing your answer as a chart, click Edit chart configuration on the right.

  2. Make sure you have a column in the Legend field.

Set a color through the legend

  1. On the chart, click the color icon of the legend value you would like to change the color of.

  2. Use the color picker to choose a new color to represent that legend value.

    You can also enter a HEX value directly.

  3. Click outside of the picker to dismiss the picker.

  4. Actions > Save your changes.
