    Synchronize Colors on Two Barcharts

    peter.ugincius

      I have two barcharts on one dashboard that track widgets completed by employee.  One chart shows the actual number of widgets built, the other shows a weighted number per employee -- so, the actual set of employee names is identical on each chart.  I have 'employee' on the color shelf on each chart, but whenever a new employee appears in the data, their representative color on one chart does not automatically match that in the other; i.e., "John Doe" is purple in one chart, blue in the other.  I can easily reset the color on one chart to match the other, but I'd rather not have to that for each new employee. 

       

      This may be related to the fact that each chart has its own datasource -- though, employee name is identical in each source. 

       

      The bottom line question -- Is there a way to synchronize colors automatically?
