Before publishing, you’ll likely want to customize the colors you use in your assessment so that they match with the branding of your website or logo.
Evalinator allows you to do just that. In this post we’ll highlight the steps you should take and some gotchas as you start with this process.
RGB or Hex
Both formats are supported – hex (e.g. #4285f4) or RGB (e.g. rgba(182, 195, 55, 1)).
The main difference is during the display of your charts. Especially for polar or radar charts, a certain level of transparency in colors is required to display the graph correctly. The last number in the RGB format specifies that.
So, stick to the format that is already pre-populated on the screen. You can easily convert your favorite hex color codes to RGB and vice versa by simply typing it in the Google search box which will show you both hex and RGB representations.
You can leave the last number of the RGB format as “1”, or just omit it.
Difference between Band and Chart colors
You will notice there are 5 band colors, and 5 chart colors. Why?
The band colors are used in the primary chart of your assessment. e.g. when we show which rating band a user falls under, or the colors of a Wheel of Life.
The chart colors are used for other charts like profile benchmarking etc.
It’s preferable to use a different set of colors for both to avoid confusion. That’s because users will unconsciously link the colors in the primary chart to the colors in the other charts when there is actually no real correlation between them.
How to Choose Your Colors?
