Color style not matching metric labels

When creating pie charts I noticed the metics names do not match the colors (see how USA-West is blue in one chart and yellow in the other).  Is there a way to order the color style alphabetically?  It seems they are being assigned a color based on the metic value.

 

Thanks!

Hi Tomi,

 

There is no way (yet) to bind colors to the actual data.

Thanks for the response.  

 

I did find a work around but it takes a little effort.  For example, I have two pie charts with Yes and No as the output. In both charts the yes and no colors don't match.  To display Yes as Red and No as blue in both charts I change the order of the colors in the style box.  It's not ideal but will do the job for now.

Hi Dave, 

 

Will this be considered as an improvement in the future? It's kind of important to have this feature when comparing multiple pie charts. 

 

Thanks!

Yes, this is something we're considering for the future, but no timeline as of yet.
