Task Coloring by Projects


Introduction

Task coloring by projects is a good and visual way to determine which tasks are connected to which projects. Your taskbars or Gantt charts can be also colored using task colors, task custom data fields or project custom data fields. 

Must-know about this feature

To color your Gantt charts by project colors, you must choose colors for your projects. You can do that in the project dialog when creating the project or just choose a color later.
