Color Palette

Color Palettes

Color Palettes are a collection of colors that allow you to customize and beautify your charts. Analytics Plus offers a variety of color palettes to choose from. By default, when you create a chart, the colors assigned to your chart are those that are set for the corresponding workspace. You can also add your own color palettes to suit your reporting requirements. 

Please do note that this feature is available only as a part of the new charting library that was released recently. If you are using an earlier version of Analytics Plus, please upgrade to avail these options.
