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 can't believe there are only 65 votes on this. I'm sure majority of users deal with this. Tableau has this feature and saves a lot of time...

Another point to consider conditional formatting: tachometer's range colors.

I hope I'm not duplicating other comments. It would be great to also add conditional formatting for bar chart's label and axis that allows set up based on a measured or calculated columns.

RE: Field Format - Report Wide

Please do this. I want the same color to represent the same unique items across multiple charts and it takes a long time to set up.

It's late june 2019, I was going to ask this feature and I understood it was requested 3 years ago. Too bad it has been not implemented, I find absurd this gap in a professional system.
