You can use Conditional Coloring for so much more than just keeping an eye on the Task or Project status. You can visually prioritize Projects or add a Project Manager or a location. Really think about your needs and the options that the scheduling tool is giving you. If you want to permanently apply this Color Scheme to the View then make sure to save it to the View after the scheme is applied.
