Why The Change?
This resolves two issues mentioned by users of the report:
Helping the color-blind
The more the report is used within an organization, the chances that a color-blind person will review the report go up. Using distinctive shapes helps those that need something in addition to color to use the report.
Printing in black and white
When everything was a circle, printing the report in black and white made it difficult to distinguish between the red and green circles. By using a square and a circle, printing in black and white is not an issue.
