## Pie chart Colors

Hi everyone,

How can I color the pie charts according to the dimensions?

I do have a pie chart contains 6 different dimensions of different cases, For Example: when the status is passed the color should be red and so on....?

Anyone can help me with that?

Hi @Sally3! I don't fully get the part where you say that "[...] a pie chart contains 6 different dimensions".

Let me try to make an example. Let's say you have a dimension called "status" with different values in it, like "In process", "Completed", "Pending" etc. You can assign to each one of these values a specific color creating a Master Dimension.

In the example attached, I created a Master Dimension called "Master_Dim1" which contains the values 'A', 'B', 'C'.

I then assign a color to each of these values. Finally, when I create the pie chart with "Master_Dim1" as a dimension, I can have the colors I set automatically assigned to the values 'A', 'B', 'C' (sometimes in the pie chart you need to go to Appearance>Colors and legend>Colors and set it as "By Dimension").

Let me know if this was useful!

As you know Pie chart has one field for showing different dimensions, I believe specifying the colors should be in expressions area.
