When viewing a report, some users face the issue that all the lines for line chart are presented in black color/ for bar chart the columns are shown as stripped colors.


This is configured on the instance as per Accessibility standards. The Now Platform is designed to be as accessible as possible without user modification or setting changes. There are several colour and style changes that make the platform more accessible.


If the above is not required, you can disable the 'Data Visualisation Pattern'. By default in OOB, this is set disabled.
Data Visualization Pattern toggle button can be found from the top level settings (the Gear icon at the top right ) > General.
