Chart Styling Template- select the default colours for the charts.

The chart properties allow colours to be set for up to 10 time series within each chart. A specific Chart Property template can be applied to the entire application (via the Edit Application Details Module) which would then make that template the default for the application.

IF an alternate Chart Template is created, it can be applied to a specific Event Form (Via the Chart Properties in the Advanced Form Properties). If this is set, it will override the Application Template settings. See the "Chart Styling Changes for the Application" document.

IF a user has set colours and size properties for a field within an Event Form for an In Form Report or a field that is set as Chart by Default, then these settings will override any Form Chart Styling Templates, AND/OR the Application Properties Styling Template. For more on setting up individual colours and properties on a field by field basis in an Event Form, see the document on "Set the chart properties (colour, line width and transparency) for each field within an Event Form".

To set the colours for the template, go to the Chart Properties in the Builder Site

10 series are available to select. However, most charts will only display up to 3 fields, so the first 3 colours are the most important to set.

Note, the 1st Time Series Colour will be applied to the first time series field shown in each chart. This means if there are 8 charts, they will ALL have blue as the first colour for their first time series field.
