Please allow us to customize the colors of bar charts based on values in a single field. Right now, if we choose a field that houses all the categories associated with the features, we only get the option of a single color.

If we create a bar chart using multiple fields, each fields can apparently have a color but that doesn't work well for the way most categorical datasets are configured.

Is there an option to change bar chart colours? - Esri Community

Here to say... we should definitely have control over the bar chart colors + labels in the pop-ups within Map Viewer. Can't tell anything by this... hover over for label doesn't make sense.

I was trying to recreate the symbology that one of my colleagues produced in a Dashboard using the same dataset in Experience Builder. It would be great if the options available to customize charts in Dashboards were available in Experience Builder.

Hi @NeilPennanen_dnr thank you for your comments. Consider additional Idea kudo over here ... https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-online-ideas/color-and-label-configuration-for-charts-in-map/id...

This is a great suggestion. Otherwise you have to get a creative with how you display the datasets and adds extra work from a data management point of view.

In circle diagrams the option to change colours within the same attribute is available and in bar or column charts this option is not available. Can't imagine why this would pose a technical challenge as a feature for the experience builder.

Definitely support this. The same chart options that are in Dashboard should be in Experience Builder, with the ability to control colors & labels high up on the priority list.
