We continue to get requests from our Wrike users for more visual elements (images/colors) on table-based reports and in the Table views for projects/folders.
We'd like the ability to select from a pre-defined list of icons within a custom field and set the color (similar to how Space icons are selected/configured), where that icon/color will be visible when the custom field is displayed in Table view for folders/projects or in table-based reports.
We're thinking along the lines of a new custom field type similar to the existing single-select type. But instead of entering text for each option, you would select an icon/color, so the custom field would allow single selection from a pre-defined list of these icons. (Even better if you can also enter text for each icon, and have that text appear as a tooltip on icon hover.)
Maybe icons/colors could instead be added as an option to the existing Single Select custom field type?
We're already using custom workflows to add color where we can, and that works in some cases, but that's not flexible enough to solve for all the use cases where imagery/colors would be helpful.
Here are a couple of simple mockups of how this might look in the table view and reports.
