Setting custom and conditional report colors

You can customize the color of reports with or without using an expression. An expression uses a conditional statement to specify a color palette to match the given condition. You can use a condition to highlight a specific performance problem area. For example, if a value drops below 100, you can add a condition to turn the color of the counter to "red".
