why series color keep changing?

Hi Domo Experts,

 

I have a status series in my card. Solved should be green, pending should be blue, open should be red. I set the series color in Chart properities - > Color. It works right after I set it. However, after a few days, I noticed that the color massed up. Solved changed to blue, open changed to green...etc.

    What kind of sorting do you have set? 

     

    Domo Colors are based on Series, so when you set it up you get Series 1 = green, Series 2 = Blue, Series 3 = Red. So if you sort from count high to low on day one Series 1 is first and shows as green just like you wanted. Tomorrow the acount of Series 2 is now the highest, which means it's ordered first and is now technically Series 1 and will show as green. See where I'm going with this?

     

    I've had similar troubles for things like JIRA Statuses. I try to organize them by color but if a new status is added or something like that it goes out of whack. One think you can try to do is create a beastmode to sort the values in the order you want permanently.

     

    Ex.

    (CASE
    WHEN (`status_name` = 'To Do') THEN 1
    WHEN (`status_name` = 'Defining') THEN 2
    WHEN (`status_name` = 'In Progress') THEN 3
    WHEN (`status_name` = 'Done') THEN 4

     END )

    Using the above to sort means To Do = the value of 1, Defining = 2, etc so if you sort low-high they will always appear in this order and the colors won't get messed up.
