In my mind I think of it as applying color to the legends/headers of my columns.  I get taht typically you only need to color and format your metrics. But I also think it would help if there was a way to tie these colors back to the headers of the rows. For example:Tableau Example.png

I'd have Alabama in blue, Arkansas in Orange and so forth. I know that too much color could be confusing. Ideally it'd be great if I could have different colors too. 


I found a work around for it using the workbook from here

How can I apply custom colors to my header values?


this isn't too common of an item, but I thought today that Tableau would be able to handle this easily. I searched through the forums and other ideas, if there is already one for coloring the headers, let me know.
