Hi @Sean-OReilly 

 

Download sample PBIX file

 

Create a measure like this

 

 

BarColor = "#" & MID("0123456789ABCDEF",RANDBETWEEN(1,16),1) & MID("0123456789ABCDEF",RANDBETWEEN(1,16),1) & MID("0123456789ABCDEF",RANDBETWEEN(1,16),1) & MID("0123456789ABCDEF",RANDBETWEEN(1,16),1) & MID("0123456789ABCDEF",RANDBETWEEN(1,16),1) & MID("0123456789ABCDEF",RANDBETWEEN(1,16),1) 

This generates a color in Hex e.g. #75AD21

 

Select the bar chart and under Format -> Data Colors click the fx button to enter the Conditional Formatting
