[Status: Backburner ⏳] Color attribute with custom fields

 I would like to be able to highlight custom fields with a color attribute to show various conditions. In particular, I am looking to have a color attribute with a drop down field selections. When a person looks at a custom field on a screen or report, it is highlighted with the appropriate color attribute. It is easier to highlight various conditions with color to help people to find information versus reading through text.

I'm watching a recorded webinar on custom fields and the instructor appears to have fields that are color coded? I agree with all of the above comments that this would be extremely helpful so just trying to understand what does and does not exist for color coding fields.

This would be a huge help...I get a lot of 'moaning' about lack of simple visibility and this would address most of that issue.

Plus one. I agree with Robyn, I feel like I've seen this feature in newer product demo/tutorial videos, and I was a little confused to not have the same color options (I thought) I saw in my account. I have noticed more color options (1) in the progress column based on project health, and (2) the calculated custom fields on the table view (but that option isn't available in the reports view of calculated custom fields). More of this type of color would be helpful for us!

I have a lot visual team members who in the past, would rather build one-off reports from scratch in excel. When we started using Wrike, I actually had to convince team members that Wrike reports were generating the same information that they had across various spreadsheets in different locations. At first, I didn't understand why they couldn't see that, but I began to notice it's because the reports weren't as visually appealing. They thought the information was different - and in some cases, more information than it actually was, because columns weren't color coded and didn't pop in the same way as they did in spreadsheets. We settled to download reports from Wrike and edit/enhance them in excel - or to remove some columns and make reports more tailored/concise than they originally were in excel.

Another vote for color coordination in custom fields. This is a pain to not currently do and as others have said above, frustrating as it should be a simple report feature.

Is there a way or will there be a way to have the full cell in the table view be a custom color?

Completely agree with these requests - it is so hard to get team members, especially my Creatives who are inherently very visual, to look at this spreadsheet and just see row after row of information and no clear way to read it.  Even sorting by priority isn't all that helpful because of how the projects/tasks are grouped so it doesn't actually pull all of the "high" priorities to the top.  

This is a major miss for a tool that is supposed to be easy, visual and for Creatives!

Another vote for adding color 😀. It would be really useful in our projects to have color on the table view to have a better tracking of tasks.

I agree, this is a function that would be really beneficial especially from a reporting perspective.   As it is now.  I am going to need to export the report in Excel and then write a macro or something to color code and format for readability.

There's a work around here; 

  1. Make a custom work flow 
  2. Add the custom drop down that you want
  3. Assign them colours
  4. Then change the default work flow of the project/folder to your new custom work flow. 
  5. Then open a task window within your folder
  6. Click the status box.
  7. At the bottom, click 'All Acount Workflows' 
  8. Select you new custom workflow and assign your new colour coded drop down list.

Hopefully this works for you. Or at least go to the support team with this process.

Good luck!
