More custom styling options for a dashboard/report

We have been facing a surge of requests on Styling Customization Options recently. Some requests we received up to now is to allow users to change:

  • Font family and font size of titles, axes, content, etc. in dashboards/reports;
  • Colors, such as dashboard themes and visualizations’ colors (table, pivot, cohort retention, etc.);
  • Dashboard display (or resizing) mode: Resolution adjustment?

If that’s what your team is also looking for, feel free to upvote this topic :small_red_triangle:, share with us your use cases and your priority as well :blush:

This is really needed. I’d add null titles and table column sizing options and/or locks.

hi @sm_mk
You can upvote for the table column resizing request here: Ability to resize columns of Table/Pivot. Please help me share more detail about your case in this post :blush:

In the meantime, what did you mean “null title” and “locks”?

By null title/label i mean the ability to make the title or label nothing. Right now I use custom label and just put a space in it so no text appears which is just a work around. By locks I’m referring to locking columns in a table to a certain size or locking widgets to a set size so that they don’t change with resolution changes.

Great to see that you are working on this topic!

I also use the workaround of putting a space in the title/labels when I do not want it to be displayed. The default labels for legends look messy - I do not want the metric name to be displayed next to each and every label.

Custom colors for tables and cohorts would also be nice. The current color palette options suffice for me, but I do see that some charts can not use them yet. It looks weird when I have a dashboard where most charts follow our default colors, but there is one cohort retention that does not.

Hi everyone!

Thank to the support team for responding to my feedback involving customising data labels and legends in our dashboards as well! Just wanted to put in this thread my thoughts on what Holistics can improve on.

Our company is currently creating some infographics using standard templates. We have placeholders where we can put in charts (e.g. pie charts). Ideally we felt it is more efficient to screenshot our charts and paste them onto our infographics template, so that we can quickly generate them on a monthly basis with new figures.

Unfortunately, what happened was that it can be quite hard to read with the default font size and colour of the data labels and legends. Consumers would need to zoom into the image to read out the descriptors.

Below is an image where we attempt to explain the “wasted space” that can be sometimes generated, and how a customised label will help minimise it.


Our use case is simple, we are using holistics for embedding into our customer facing web portal. We want all fonts in holistics to match the surrounding web portal and remain on brand. Currently this is not possible.
