Changing the Visual Color Metric

You can change the metric used to determine the colors used on a visual while you are viewing it. (If you want to alter the defaults used by a visual, make your changes on the Visuals tab of your data source configurations. A shortcut to this tab is available when working with a visual by selecting Defaults on the visual drop-down menu).

To change the color metric while you are viewing a visual:

  1. Select the color metric directly on your visual. A Color dialog appears.

  2. Select a new metric to be used to determine the colors on your visual.

  3. Select the aggregation function that should be used with the color metric: SUM, AVG, MAX, MIN, or (for some data sources) LAST VALUE. See Available Metric Functions.

    The visual renders using colors determined by the select metric and its aggregated values.
