Hi Shiv, thanks for sharing this feedback!

I want to make sure we get your request recorded correctly, so I just wanted to follow up. Right now we do have some color-coding in the Workspace: 1) If a task is overdue, its due date is color-coded in red and 2) On the Timeline and Workload Views you can check the box next to "highlight overdue" to have overdue tasks marked in red. Were you looking for more or different color-coding options, or maybe to see a list of overdue tasks somewhere in particular?

Hi Stephanie:  Yes, I already use. But this is only status.  Why can't the font colors also change. There is a significant difference (psychologically) when task colors (including texts) changes.

@Shiv, I understand, it sounds like you want the task title to change color, instead of just the task due date. Thank you for providing that additional information :)

This is a great idea.  And a suggested improvement would be to have these colors change automatically based on parameters set by the user - if the due date for the task is within x days of the today's date, change it to a user selected color (eg. yellow).  If the due date is today, automatically change it to another user selected color (eg. red).
