Often the default QuickBase report colors don’t match the story you’re trying to tell with the data. For example “losses” may be green while, “gains” are in red. This can make interpreting the chart and taking away the right understanding more difficult than it needs to be. And even when the color and the data are telling the same story it could be a distracting element on your homepage if you’re using a custom color pallet.
Align your chart colors to your data story.
Match your chart colors to your QuickBase or company brand.
When the data and the color of your charts work together to tell a story it’s a beautiful thing!
FROM THE TUTORIAL: “...I want to change the not started status from blue to gray and the issue status from orange to red. To do so I'll need to customize this report. Then scroll down to the section that has the colors. Here I can click on a color square and choose another color by simply dragging around the color on the left and changing the slider bar up and down to choose another colored region. I can also enter a custom color code if I need it to match the branding on my website...”
