QlikSense 3.2 where to set Colors for measures

Hello Community,

with the new release of QlikSense they announced the function to set colors to measures?

But I can not find this function and also no documentation to it

Where can I define the colors of measurements in charts???

Regards

Re: QlikSense 3.2 where to set Colors for measures

You have to select your measurement from the field list on the left side in QlikSense and than right click with your mouse on the field and create measures

Afterwards you create master measure and there you are able to select the color.

If you than using the master measure in a graph, you have to set "automatic colors" in the plot preferences and the measurement will be displayed in your predefined color.

Hope this helps

Re: QlikSense 3.2 where to set Colors for measures

I have found it, but in my opinion it isn't the best practice!

You have to create first a master measures and than you can choose a color!

But still not understand, why don't put it directly to the color options from the graph itself.

If I now want to show the same measure on two different plot in different colors I have to create two master measures.

Hi Tobias,

I have 2 indicators in a sigle bar chart. When I use "Milticolor", I can not choose the color what I want. It's automatical.

Do you know how we can choose the color ourself (like use "Single color")

Thanks

I understand now.

Thank you very much. (^_^)

I agree with you, it is better to put directly the color options in the graph itself
