Colors in Insight Reports

The insight reports can be customized to show a lot of helpful information. One issue I have found is that I can run 2 reports involving similar data, and the colors for the categories change from report to report. I would love to be able to assign certain colors to certain sales people, products, etc.....so that there could be some uniformity when viewing insight reports.

    Hi @Scott Ochander , we're happy to hear you're enjoying the Insights feature! It's still under development, so new abilities will be coming in the future. Stay tuned!

    I have forwarded your suggestion internally to our team so they can take it into consideration. I suggest you join our Research and Beta Testing channel to be the first to know what's coming up next and for the chance to try out early versions of new and improved features we have lined up.

    Hey Scott, thank you for pointing this out. I'm afraid for now it is expected, but it's an excellent feedback and I'll make sure to share with the team. Insights is still on Beta flag, so every feedback you can provide it's important for us to improve the feature.

    Hi Clarissa / Scott,

    Thank you for the update and pointing it out! It would be great if we could assign colours for uniformity. Right now, I have multiple reports where value X is blue in the first and orange in the second (and value Y vice versa). It's a bit confusing when you see them in one dashboard. 

    Furthermore, great tool and really helpful.
    Looking forward to the update!

    Nicole

    I have exactly the same issue. For my divisional reports, Division 1 is blue, for the second report, Division 1 is green and so on.

    Thank you, Collin!

    Even though I am not sure there is a plan already to be able to custom assign colours to your Insights reports - I made sure to pass the feedback over to the product manager.

    Thank you again,

    Kind regards,

    Vladimir

    I have the same issue. Insights is always changing which makes it impossible to make comparison charts or requires just about the same amount of time altering it within Excel to get a finished result. Additionally, and what I find more problematic as shown below is that an entire chart can't fit on one page. This means you have to click the arrows to see the rest of the chart and then it changes the colors that are assigned from the first page event though it is the same chart. This is highly confusing. I hope this is something that is changed relatively soon as insights could be such a useful feature with just this change.

    Hello @Stacey Nerz ,

     

    Thank you so much for your detailed feedback. I understand where you are coming from, therefore, I will add this to the already existing feedback to give it more visibility internally!

    Yes I have the same issue with insights. It makes it so much harder to extrapolate data.

    Just another vote for making this possible, we have four pipelines all with the same stages and I'd love to see the same colours for each stage so we can compare apples with apples!

    Yeah, I would like to use brand colours + logo to make the dashboard look good on a flatscreen in the office

    Oh yeah. I have a few weekly charts but it seems to default to showing the start of the year instead of the last 6 weeks or so and can't seem to change how it displays by default.

    I see this question was asked last year, but I'm not seeing a resolution.  Is there a way to change colors and to have them be consistent from one report to another? Thanks

    We have the same issue and its just confusing to have so many colours.

    Hello @Thaddäus Leutzendorff 

    Unfortunately, there's no ETA for this just yet but I will make sure to update our team that this is still a high priority for our users. 

    Thank you.

    I endorse that request for the ability to change colors. It will be more than helpful: essential.

    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards

    Easiest would probably be when I define the activity I want to assign them not just an icon, but also a color.

     

    As a salesperson I need data that informs what I have to do next to close a deal.

    And as a salesmanager I need to color my data in a meaningful consistent way across all reports and optimally across dashboards as well to know if we are on the right track.

    Both things Pipedrive advertises widely in their promotional materials.

  • Just want to echo this as a crucial upgrade to insights. Not being able to assign colors in the key defeats the purpose of visual charts; if you're displaying charts for comparison and the colors for "X" in chart one is blue and "X" is purple in the next chart, this just creates confusion. I'm quite surprised Pipedrive hasn't fixed this for over a year. This feels like a pretty common feature for any platform capable of producing these types of reports...

    Another +1 here. This renders the reporting so useless that we will be considering a move, probably to hubspot, to make sure the reporting is actually usable. For me with this issue still not addressed PD is a CRM without a reporting feature and that is not good enough for the price we are paying and the requirements we have.
