The Color Themes feature allows users to create custom color palettes to be applied at the site-, dashboard-, and chart-level.
Note: Color Themes are an add-on feature. Please contact your Sales Executive or the Periscope Data Support team for additional information.
Color Themes can be accessed through 'Settings' by clicking on the gear icon and choosing 'Preferences.'
At the bottom of the page, admins can add color themes by clicking on the green plus-sign icon. Existing color themes can be edited by clicking on the gear icon to the right and choosing 'Edit'.
Within the theme editor, admins can add custom colors to the palette by using either the color gradient or entering a hex code.
Colors are added to a graph-like chart in the order they appear in this menu from left to right. For example, with the theme shown below, the first bar in a bar chart would be colored gray, the second bar would be light blue and the third, light green. The order of the colors can be switched by clicking on a color and dragging it to the left or right.
In addition, admins can choose default colors for the text and background colors of table-like charts.
After selecting the custom palette, the color theme can be named by editing the box displaying 'Untitled Color Theme'. Once the color theme is saved with its new title, the admin can set the new theme as site default.
When a new dashboard is created, the site default is automatically applied. To customize which palette is applied to the dashboard, click on the Dashboard Preferences burger icon and open the 'Settings' menu. From there, under the 'Dashboard Theme' dropdown, admins can customize which palette to set as the dashboard default, overriding the default set at the site-level.
Charts will automatically adopt the palette set in their dashboard settings. However, users with edit-access can customize the color theme for the chart within the Series Settings tab under the Color Theme dropdown.
