Ability to update colors in gantt chart?

I am building out a Gantt Chart visual and to stay compliant with my company's brand standard colors, I need to change the colors of the legend fields (the horizontal bars). I am looking in the format tab and unlike with other visuals, I don't see an option to change the colors. Is it possible to do?




Hi @akkolbeck,

Agree with sam.

Regarding to the request that change colors of legend fields, you can vote it in the following idea.

Hi, no its not not possible. some of the custom vis's just dont have that level of flexability yet.


As a work around could you create a gant chart in excel using more traditional methods and publish to your dashboard though the excel to power bi addin? Its not a 100% perfect solution but might sort out your immediate needs.

// if this is a solution please mark as such. Kudos always appreciated.
