Tasks > Conditional Coloring

 Using different color schemes on data fields can be handy for getting overviews by custom criteria (f.e task statuses, locations etc). Coloring can be used only with tasks and projects using 'List of values' custom data field type.

To start using color schemes feature with predefined values, you must first create task or project custom data fields and enter custom values.


To create and use color schemes for tasks:

  • Create a 'List of values (coloring)' type task custom field and assign values to your tasks
  • Open 'Color taskbars by' section and select the created field under 'Task custom field' section

  • The color legend with custom values/statuses appears.
  • Now select a color for each status/field. In the example below, the fields are marked in striped green for 'Done', blue for 'In progress', orange for 'Planned'


  • Your tasks are now colored according to predefined task statuses

To use color schemes for projects:

  • Create a 'List of values (coloring)' type project custom field and assign values to your projects
  • Open 'Color taskbars by' section and select the created field under 'Project custom field' section

  • The color legend with custom values/statuses appears. Now select a color for each status/field

  • Your tasks are now colored according to predefined project statuses
