    Color assignment logic and behavior

    gioel.molinari

      I am looking for a behavior for color palette such that colors are assigned to measures on a chart in a fixed order rather than by label. What I mean by this is I want the first mark on a chart to always be red, the second blue, third yellow, etc. Currently it appears that tableau uses some sort of fixed assignment behind the scenes such that a given mark (like ValuesA) always gets the same color.

       

      Specific example is attached. When you click on a cell in the table on Dash it will plot that data series over time. Problem is I have an in house standard whereby the palette needs to be assigned in constant order. Is there a way to control this?
