Visual Planning


Introduction

Visual enhancement is a staple tool. Universal color codes such as red for urgent, amber for pending and green for available could make your planning more effective. Allow colors to determine a task’s status or importance, or simply use colors for differentiation. Ranging from neon to pastel, there are 40 distinct colors to choose from. It is within your control to assign colors to project parameters for a more organized and structured planning environment.
