Customize chart widget colors

I have two charts on my dashboard, one looks at value split up by project type, the other looks at time again split up by project type. I really wish I could adjust the colors because for some reason Monday.com assigns random colors and the SAME PROJECT TYPE will have two different colors. (see screenshot). Level 3 on the top chart is blue but then on the bottom chart level 2 is blue :frowning:
My team likes to look at these two items together and compare the time it takes for a project type vs the revenue it brings it and having the colors differ makes it very confusing.

+1 I have a similar problem but with other graphs like Bar and Line graphs that I’d like to stabalize the colors. Remember, we use “shapes and colors” for executives, so this is their most likely interaction with Monday.com and they pay for it…so please bump this up the feature list!!!

I have the same need, we would be able to highlight “most” important data (at a glance) in dashboards to our audience

This is a must have for chart functionality, at the very least allow us to assign colors to number columns like we can with status/labels because those colors seem to carry over into charts anyway.

This is the first issue I’ve run into trying to adopt Monday as our go-to team management tool.
Because the colors are inconsistent, whatever data the viewer is looking at has to be re-interpreted every time they view it - we can’t use basic graph fundamentals like green = good, red = bad.

Having color choice for benchmark lines but not for the charts themselves feels like a glaring oversight or poor prioritization.

I love Dashboards but we really need to be able to set our own colors. I want each chart color to represent an item consistently across one dashboard. It melts my brain to have to readjust every time I go from chart to chart on the same Dashboard.

Same here. I have colors set for other charts and the auto-color in the pie chart makes it difficult to tell them apart across the board. Please add feature for us to control the color scheme of the pie chart.
Thank you!

+1 here, it is really important to change the colours manually

We are thinking about adopting Monday.com and not being able to change colors in bar charts could be a deal-breaker. For example, if a bar chart shows a negative number (bar below the x axis), really want to color it red!

It is essential to be able to change chart colors! Please add such simple functionality

+1. Very basic functionality that exists on our project management platforms

As a user of the platform for over 3 years, this makes a TON of sense. You got my vote!

I would very much appreciate the ability to assign colors in the dashboard areas. We use a capacity planning calendar segmented by team member, but each time we access the dashboard the colors change. This inconsistency is not desirable - please open the ability to assign permanent colors within dashboard widgets.

and it’s even weird that, the color of bars changes everytime I check on the dashboard. so it’s not stay the same for the same chart.
really couldn’t understand why this takes so long time to resolve this issue.
please let us know when we can expect a solution. thx.
