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?

Dynamically specify Data Colour using column - for all built in visuals

The other thread requesting this feature indicates completed, but there are a number of other comments indicating that the fix isn't applied to all built in visuals. - please vote up this idea to get the other visuals fixed as well.

Allow a standard color to be assigned to a column (e.g. dept), so that column always has the same color in all visuals.

Data Colours.

Lock colours on certain data catagories in order to prevent colour clashes upon refresh. For example when producing a dashboard that contains an overview of competitors across the region; there are some major competitors which one would compete against in a number of markets; it would be useful t...

Color Theme Control

Need to be able to assign colors for specific data sets. I work on healthcare architecture projects and would like to be able to set "cardiology, primary care, oncology" etc. to a certain hex code to always be represented as the same color across pages. JSON files don't seem to be able to tag a c...

KEEP COLOR CONSISTENCE

I am a user that came from QlikSense and this is one of the things I think PowerBi could improve a lot! In Qllk , the user has the option to create master dimensions or measures and assign specific colors to them! So, it does not matter when the user uses that attribute, will always be the same ...

Consistent colors for dimensions and measure

Achieving some color consistency in PowerBI is a major pain and it seriously impacts experience and productivity. Two major improvements could be implemented -Measure default color - ability to assign a default color to any measure, to be used in relevant charts (line, bar, areas...) . -Color...

Data colour - Default color formatting based on field or measure for all visuals

Currently the "based on field" formatting (identified by the button "fx" under "Data Colors") is not available for all the standard visuals (like line chart, area chart, stacked area chart, pie chart, donut chart). This option (available only for the bar/column chart visuals) disappears if a data...

Global Data Colors

I would like the option to set global data colors for my reports based on a specific field within the data, that will impact all charts using that field. For example, in our current data set we have a field 'Customer'. Each customer is assigned their own unique color that corresponds to our othe...

dynamically-specify-data-colour-using-measure for Line Charts

There is dire need to have this functionality implemented for the line charts to retain the data colors(user specific hexacode in automated fashion) for the same data points across the different line charts. We need the functionality to change the colors using measure. https://ideas.powerbi.co...

Conditional formatting for dimensions

It’s good that you added it, but it’s really some basic alpha-beta level only, in my opinion. It should enable the users to conditionally-format also the dimensions (Attributes) and not only measures (Metrics). For example I have got a report with Revenue $ by region (AMER / EMEA / APJ) and i wa...
