Gantt Chart bars - different colors to distinguish

Hi all,

Is there a way to change the color on a gantt chart view while utilizing it on a dashboard? I tried to change them from the report but I can't seem to find the option. Maybe I'm thinking that I've used it under the calendar functionality and getting confused. Can someone confirm?

    Hi @Jona Gjylameti

    Try something like this.

    =SUMIFS(Budget:Budget; [Current quarter]:[Current quarter]; 1)

    The same version but with the below changes for convenience.

    =SUMIFS(Budget:Budget, [Current quarter]:[Current quarter], 1)

    Depending on your country/region, you'll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

    Did that work?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
