Laptop with Cascade Chart of Diageo Revenue Change

Common Coloring for Cascades

We have seen lots of examples of Cascade charts that use color to highlight increases and decreases. The typical way it is shown is that the total bars are one color, all positive values are green and all negative values are red. You can do this by recoloring each segment (right click on a segment and choose the color for a segment from the floating menu) or you can set up your data sheet with a row for Total, Increase and Decrease and then choose a color for each of the series (in the Bars and Series menu or by right clicking on a bar and choosing a color for the series from the floating menu).
