    Changing the palette for dashboards - A Beginner's Dilemma

    Donna Peak

      I have dashboards in two different workbooks I am trying to combine.  I am using 10.4 Desktop and 10.4 Server.  The dashboards have two different color palettes.  I have gone back and put the Tableau 10 palettes back in my preferences because they had disappeared.  I have copied the new dashboards into the workbook I want them to reside in.  When I go to the new dashboards that I have copied in I still do not see the palettes that I have added back under my preferences.  I do see them when I start a new workbook so I am assuming it has something to do with the palette not being in the workbook when I originally created the dashboard.

       

      I have already closed Tableau Desktop and opened it back up.

       

      Is there a way that I can get the three new dashboards to have the same color scheme as all of my others?

       

      I can't post my dashboards as I work at a hospital and the data is PHI.  I am posting the update I made to my preferences.tps.

       

      <?xml version='1.0'?>

       

      <workbook>

      <preferences>

      <color-palette name="Tableau Classic 10" type = "regular">

      <color>#17becf</color> <color>#bcbd22</color> <color>#7f7f7f</color>

      <color>#e377c2</color> <color>#8c564b</color> <color>#9467bd</color>

      <color>#d62728</color> <color>#2ca02c</color> <color>#ff7f0e</color>

      <color>#1f77b4</color>

      </color-palette>

       

      <color-palette name="Tableau Classic Medium" type = "regular">

      <color>#6dccda</color> <color>#cdcc5d</color> <color>#a2a2a2</color>

      <color>#ed97ca</color> <color>#a8786e</color> <color>#ad8bc9</color>

      <color>#ed665d</color> <color>#67bf5c</color> <color>#ff9e4a</color>

      <color>#729ece</color>

      </color-palette>

       

      <color-palette name="Tableau Classic 20" type = "regular">

      <color>#9edae5</color> <color>#17becf</color> <color>#dbdb8d</color>

      <color>#bcbd22</color> <color>#c7c7c7</color> <color>#7f7f7f</color>

      <color>#f7b6d2</color> <color>#e377c2</color> <color>#c49c94</color>

      <color>#8c564b</color> <color>#c5b0d5</color> <color>#9467bd</color>

      <color>#ff9896</color> <color>#d62728</color> <color>#98df8a</color>

      <color>#2ca02c</color> <color>#ffbb78</color> <color>#ff7f0e</color>

      <color>#aec7e8</color> <color>#1f77b4</color>

      </color-palette>

      </preferences>

      </workbook>

       

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I am ready to publish the new workbook if I can get the color scheme to match :-)

       

      Thanks,
