Why do the colors change when I pin my visuals to my dashboards?

I'm having the issue that when I have two donut visuals that have the same legend, but a different field used as the value. 

 

While in the report, the colors used for each section of the legend will be uniform, but when I pin the visual to my dashboards as a tile, the colors will be changed so that the two visuals are different on dashboard level. 

 

Is there anything that I can do to make sure the visuals maintain their original color schemes form the report level?

Hi @sean-byers,

 

I am not able  to reproduce your issue. When I create two donut visuals that have the same legend, the colors used for each section of the legend still be uniform when I pin the visuals to dashboard. For more details, please check the following screenshots.

Could you please make sure that you set same color for the legends of both visuals and save changes when creating the report?

I am having the same issue. It would be great to know why this is happening.

Re: Why do the colors change when I pin my visuals to my dashboards?

I created a report, then did the quick insights and pinned those to my dashboard.  The problem is that even though I changed the theme in my report, saved and republished, the insights tiles all come up with the DEFAULT theme not my current theme.  They also do not follow my report filters to NOT show blanks.  How can I fix this, as I need to have something at least close to my company colors and not showing the blanks by utilizing the filters already in my report?
