Template Formatting For Graphs - Consistent Colors

Options

Is there a way to keep the colors consistent for graphs. For example, I created a graph showing units by color, with columns. Right next to it, I created a pie chart using the same source data but the colors for each unit represented are different. I know I can change them to match, but what a pain to do this for all my graphs.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you

    Nope.

    Great enhancement though. You can submit enhancements in the Product Ideas section of the community. I bet there's one already there to vote up for this too.

    One thing you can do is copy a chart once you have the colors how you like. You can then change the chart type and the colors will remain the same. But adding a new chart widget resets everything for that widget and you have to start fresh.

    One other tip is to use the new color themes. Once the charts are setup, if you apply a color theme it will use the same colors in all charts. They may or may not be the same for the same series though, if the series order is different in different charts.
