    Static line colors

      I have a customer who looks at hourly metrics for the past 7 days.  They like to see each day as a separate line color (see screenshot). 

      They always want red to be the most recent, blue the next most recent and then green the third most recent. The other 4 days are not as important but would still like to see them as background.  Using the highlight selected option, the user can then select individual days to compare if they like.  The problem is when a new day is added, the line colors change.  According to tableau support, this is not supported, but was hoping someone out there might have an idea.  I was thinking I could create formulas for each of the seven days, or perhaps a custom palette for just this view?  Any ideas?
