We recommend that you give each of your entities a unique color, so that it is easy to differentiate between them on the Entity Flowchart Pipeline tab. The color that you choose for each entity is also used on the Disciplines flowchart - it is used as the color for a bookmark on the top corner of any disciplines that are associated with that entity.
