Background color

By default, it uses the background color of the dashboard theme. Selecting another color overrides the background color of the dashboard theme.

Use custom colors

Overrides the chart colors of the dashboard theme

Use the color picker or enter a hexadecimal color code to set the color of each column represented on your chart. Make sure to click Select once you’ve chosen your color to update the selection.

The colors are tied to each specific category in your chart, so if the ordering in your chart changes due to the data changing, the color you associated with Login, for example, always stays associated with Login. However, the color resets if you change the name of Login.
