This won't just help, it's a MUST for any company or institution looking to adopt QlikSense as their BI tool. Without this, we cannot apply our corporate colour palette consistently. Qlik, and specifically Qlikview was great as you could customise almost everything. The flexibility was worth the effort. However, QlikSense current lacks this flexibility. In some areas it doesn't matter so much, but in areas like this, its crucial!

There are several improvements that could be made to legends - sizing, positioning, ordering values, etc. Most essential though is to enable them to be displayed on charts using custom colours. 

The default colour schemes (by Dimension) are fine but there are just 2 of them, so highly restrictive. There aren't even obvious basic schemes for small numbers of values such as 3-colour traffic light, 7-colour roygbiv, 12-colour simple colour wheel.

Even a separate Legend-only chart type that we could drop onto the canvas next to existing charts would be better than the current situation.

Without this functionality it is impossible to create reports that meet company branding rules and color palette. I would be great to have this feature in a native charts.
