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?

I don't believe they were talking on the template or theme level. More like if country was a dimension, any time Canada would be represented in a bar or line plot, it would be a red bar or line. Mexico would be a green bar or line, etc. Could do it with some DAX and rules if the Data Color property had conditional formatting.

Filter to show the graphics as they appear to a color blind user?

Do Templates and Themes not accomplish what you are looking for?

RE: Field Format - Report Wide

Being able to conditionally format all my graphics (shapes) and text for KPI thresholds is critical.
Please add this feature ASAP

RE: Field Format - Report Wide

I want to vote for this. I like that I can make a conditional variable that assigns a color code to conditionally format a table column, but it's a serious flaw that I can't apply that same formatting to data colors of bars and pie charts.
