Is it possible to match color of legend column across all visualizations?

I have a Gantt chart and a donut chart.

I have dynamically populated column values for the legends on both of these charts. As the data is getting populated I noticed that the colors used for the Gannt chart are NOT matching those used in the donut chart.

I think this makes it difficult for new users of Power Bi to adopt this technology. I can't set the colors manually because it's alot of values and i want it to be dynamic.

Any guidance?

Thank you.

hi, @Anonymous

 the color of legend column is filled dynamically by sort order of visual.

for example:

If I set "sort by" for Gantt chart to soft by Task Name desc

set "sort by" for donut chart to soft by Duration desc

4.JPG

Now colors of legend column of them are not matched

5.JPG

But when I set "sort by" for donut chart to soft by Task Name desc

6.JPG

Now colors of legend column of them are matched

7.JPG

So you could keep all the visualizations have the same "sort by", the color of legend column will be matched.

 

here is a demo pbix, please try it.
