This is something which can be done within design worksheet. This however will require you to have column groupings setup.

To use a certain column grouping colour you need to update the grouping ID.

In the below example we have the grouping ID as "biz".

When we launch a worksheet, we can see the business sections takes whatever the colour is on this grouping. The following is an example.

This can be used for "biz" (business section), "ind" (Individual section) and "team" (Team section).

The following is an example where I have defined all three sections within separate groupings.

grouping id ind.pnggrouping id team.pnggrouping id biz.png

This configuration will show as follows in a worksheet.

If you do not have column groupings within your template, you will therefore be unable to define a colour for your sections.

In this scenario the sections will automatically populate in grey.

Note: If you have a multiple sections (e.g: multiple business sections), then you need to define that via different section names, like biz2, biz3 etc to color the headers.
