We often have columns or measures that we want to be formatted the same in EVERY report tab in EVERY visual the same way. There is no universal method to format a measure in every visual in a report. We have to go into each visual on each report tab and do the exact same field formatting (colors, etc.) in each visual. We would like there to be a Universal option.

And, you know what will come next? :-) No doubt, somebody will want the formatting to be report wide EXCEPT for one single visual somewhere. Is that possible too?

Voted! I need to assign a color to different sport teams and I have the colors as a data point. Would be ideal if the chart bars, maps bubbles, etc. to reflect those colors.

RE: Field Format - Report Wide

Conditional Color formatting should exist.

RE: Field Format - Report Wide

If the color scheme can be defined in another column that would be perfect e.g. country column pulls its color scheme from country_color_scheme.

Like to see conditional formatting for values in a matrix. ie Negative = Red font and positive = Black.

RE: Field Format - Report Wide

I would like to be able to color code text (e.g. "High" is red, "Medium" is yellow, etc. And it would also be great to be able to do the same for unicode. So if I can make an upward arrow green, a downward arrow red, etc. The point it, I have use cases for having more granular control over a variety of text and other DAX calculated elements. Thanks!

RE: Field Format - Report Wide

Conditional formatting should not only be available if you summarize your data... if you want a line to turn red based on a value in your table why would you force the user to summarize????

RE: Field Format - Report Wide

Please add the ability to conditionally format text independent of background. It would make a huge difference for financial reporting and allow the correct emphasis to be placed on columns or outliers.

Yes, This would be nice, E.g Based on a measure value we should be able to conditional format the text with in the dashboard
