Assigning different colours to treemap items


I have an issue with treemap visual but could be expanded in other visuals as well. 


In my normal dataset I have a list of brands in rows (A, B ,C..) and a list of values in columns (value share, volume share etc).


Instead of building a tree map which will show which brand has the biggest value, I want to do the opposite. 


I want for 1 specific brand (A), to show all the contributing factors to each growth or decline, with a treemap (client insists on this). 


Some values are negative so apparently cannot be represented in the treemap, as we cant have negative area. 


I make them absolute values in my dataset (excel), along with a marking depending on what kind of value was initially ("positive" or "negative"). 


What I simply need to do is once I get the treemap, to automatically assign colours depending on the aforementioned marking (red for negatives and green for positives). 


Do you think that's possible?

Or I need to do it for each brand mannually?

Re: Assigning different colours to treemap items

That would be nice in so many different places. Being able to use a measure to set the color of a section of a visualization. But it's not possible (yet!).


Check in the ideas forum to see if someone has already suggested it and vote for it. The more votes the more likely we are to see it happen.
