Allow color / colour changing on vertical/horizontal bar graphs

Salesforce Platform, Reports & Dashboards

Under Point Threshold


It seems you can choose colours for picklists so that your Donut/Pie graphs reflect the colours you want, however when you choose a vertical or horizontal bar graph you always get the blue colour. 

Why not have a little colour palette on the formatting section of a chart to select the colours of your chart. Since charts are there to be graphic representations of numbers and figures, we need more control over the way they display.

You get legends when you have 2 groupings - for instance, by state and industry, you'd be showing revenue. Then you could get the industries in different colors and set the color for each industry.
