User Profiles and Colours

Hi I am a little disappointed that everytime I add someone to my platform they are all green and variations of green, this is just confusing things for my team.  Can we not have other colours for each user ?  Perhaps colours I would like to select.

Hi Scott! Are you referring to the background color of their profile picture (the default one with initials)? If so, is there a certain type of grouping with the help of color coding that you use? Something I would recommend is having users upload their own profile pictures, and trying out User Groups for easier management of teams and departments. Happy to help set this up and answer any further questions!

We would like to be able to select/assign other colors too. When you add a custom profile picture, does it still keep the user initials in the foreground?

@Rebecca Hey, welcome back 🙂

When you add a custom picture, the initials will not be kept. I guess you can create a picture that would contain initials and a photo using third party tools.

Can you please explain where else you'd like to select/assign colors? Have you already seen how to edit a group's avatar? 🙌

I'll be happy to discuss further!

Hi @Lisa!

The main place we want to see this is on Dashboards, I have a widget set up for each team member's tasks, and some tasks are assigned to multiple team members. Because some of the default colors are so close together it is hard to see at a glance exactly which team members are assigned. We'd like to select colors that are more distinct so it is easier to manage our workload.

The custom avatars/pictures wouldn't be as nice as it would be as clean and clear which user is which.

Thanks!

Hi Lisa, I also have a similar need, as we use the coloured profile colours to denote which resource group people are in. How can I change the colour on other user's profile? Or can they change the colour themselves? 

Thanks,

Amanda

Hi Amanda Ainsworth! 🙂

In this case, I'd suggest creating custom pictures for your team's profiles, for example, their initials with fonts of the colors that you need. Or, you can create User Groups, enter initials for them and choose colors:

Please let me know if you'd like to discuss!

As per the above comments we would also find it very useful to change the colour of user's profiles (rather than create custom pictures). Is this on the development roadmap?

I just want to add another use case to this as well - we have two members of our team who have the same initials (let's say AA), and for whatever reason, Wrike gave their icons the same color.  It's not a huge thing, but it's super annoying because I can no longer determine who's working on what from dashboards, I have to go into those projects.

It might be helpful if owner's and admin, including group admins, were able to customize their respective resource group's avatar with an image, like they can with an individual user or collaborator.

Adding on to this request. We have a small team of three and we all have a different shade of orange for our icons; not easy to see who is assigned to what. Being able to simply change the color of everyone's icons would be great and doesn't seem like a big ask.

Thanks!

Hey team - has there been any update on this? Is the product team planning to work on this?

Hey Kate Dupuis! Although this isn't something that the Product team is working on currently, you can still change profile pictures as explained here. I can see you had a situation when two team members have the same initials - for that, I'd recommend using some more personalized avatars.
