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

To change the colors used in a chart, use the color picker on the chart styles panel. You can set colors for:

  • bars, lines, areas, bubbles, maps, and other visuals on charts
  • 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.
