How can include the colour “White” into Tableau’s colour pallet

For those that use Tableau’s Colour Pallets often, may have noticed that the colour white isn’t actually included within the colour pallet. I hadn’t actually noticed this until recently when I was with a client and they wanted the colour white instead of red. It is terribly difficult to get this working, and there are actually a couple of ways you can do this

1)    Create a custom colour pallet with the colour white within it – refer to our previous blog for more info (you will just need to add the code for “white” within it)

2)    “Double Click” – yes literally double click on the colour (that simple eh)

So consider this simple view:

Now I want to replace the red line (for the year 2014) with a white line:

a.    Go to the colour legend and navigate to “Edit Colours”

b.    Double click on “2014”

c.    Adjust the sliders to show White (RGB is 255, 255, 255 and Hex is #FFFFFF)
