changing colorS on fields


With the May 2023 Release, we introduced a feature that allows for clients to color-code certain options within fields/columns. This guide walks through the process of adding or editing these color choices. Please note that only users with an akoyaGO Customizer role will be able to make these changes.




Below is an example of a client’s view that contains custom columns (fields) specific to their environment. Those choices have a bright blue color box surrounding the choice, making the text extremely difficult to see.
