Assign Colors to MicroStrategy Graphs Using Thresholds

MicroStrategy Enable Threshold on Graph

A request I often get from clients and business users when I am working on MicroStrategy dashboards or mobile BI applications is to assign specific colors to graphs based on attribute elements. Following the visualization above, on the Top 4 U.S. Wireless Providers Subscribers as of Q3-2016 as an example, requests like these can be achieved by using Thresholds based on attribute elements and selecting the option to Enable threshold on graph.
