Colour Picker for Dashboards - Colour Blind Accessibility

Currently Dashboard colours can be changed using a list of predefined colours, making it limited for colour blind users.
There are varieties of Colour blindness, and can occur at any user level.

I'd like to propose the use of a color map or color picker, along with the predefined list.

This should improve Accessibility by allowing users to select those colours visible to them.

    There are a few places in the system where colors are selected -- ARM reports is another in addition to dashboards mentioned here. Another is the feature in 19.1 for per-branch color themes.

    I posted about this recently related to ARM report creation:

    I think a color wheel like what is mentioned above, additionally with a corresponding hex-value input, and possibly an eyedropper for on-screen color selection would tie this feature together, and could be used for all system color selections.

    Thank you for your suggestion.

    We have some plans about changing existing color pickers in different places to a more advanced one, but it will happen after the migration to the new UI technology. So we'll think about it the future.
