[Chart view] Possibility to customize output data with a color palette

Unless I have missed the option to do so, I have noticed that there is no color palette available for customizing data categories in histograms and in general in all types of charts (Wrike assigns random colors by default).
This aspect is important because in reading the charts, the use of colors can greatly aid understanding, especially if the breakdown has been done by 'task statuses'; one would expect to see all 'New' tasks in blue and those in 'Completed' status in green, while at the moment they could be displayed with different colors.

Giovanni, in Chart View, we use colors defined for different statuses in the corresponding workflows to visualize data, and quite soon we will use colors defined for custom field values as well. I fully agree with you that colors are significant in conveying information visually. Can you please share the specific case (unless it's confidential) when colors do not make sense to you?

Hi Vladimir,

About 2 weeks ago, I created a Chart on a project folder to visualize all the tasks within it in a pie chart, grouped by workflow status. I noticed that the statuses were assigned colors that didn't match the colors normally assigned to the statuses in the workflow settings (e.g., completed tasks appearing in red). Unfortunately, I didn't take a screenshot, so I don't have an image to attach.

Perhaps, since the chart is still in beta, there might have been some aspects not functioning as expected during development?

In any case, today I tried creating a chart based on workflow statuses again, and as you specified in your post, I now find an exact match between the chart colors and those assigned to the statuses.

Regarding custom fields, if it becomes possible for the chart values to adopt the same colors as those assigned to custom field values, it would be perfect.

Thank you for your response! Giovanni

Giovanni,you're right. New Dashboards and Chart View are in Labs yet specifically because it's still a work in progress and may not always work as expected. I'm glad to hear that the issue with colors of statuses is gone now. We are working on adding colors of custom fields values to charts as well.

Thanks Vladimir,
I imagine that once there is a proper matching between the chart colors and those of the custom fields, we will be notified through the usual Monday morning update email. Thanks for the support, Giovanni
