[Status: Backburner ⌛️] Colour Coding Tasks

Hi there, please can I suggest a functionality whereby different type of tasks could be colour coded - this would mean that when looking at the timeline or workload view instead of just seeing a coloured stage ( e.g green = in progress etc) we see clashes of similar tasks for example,  lots of orange means lots of set up tasks going on at the same time indicating a pressure point. This would be helpful! 

Thanks

Stacey

PLEASE add the ability to color code tasks! This is a very basic functionality that the majority of project management tools have (even free ones). It's very odd that given the sophistication of Wrike, simple color coding isn't an option...

Color coding of tasks would make our view and workflow much easier to use.

Features needed to make Wrike Useful for Agile teams

I am trying to run a virtual Kanban for my agile team using Wrike, since we are already Wrike users. (The alternative if this is not possible would be to use and pay for a different tool, which is not ideal)

It would be great to allow to change the background color of a task based on the type of the task. This would facilitate identifying the type of work that needs to be done, the department or team in charge, or other criteria visually.

Hello Wrike team.  It appears that a good number of us feel that this feature request would be helpful, especially when running Agile projects from Board view.  I am seeing there are 60 upvotes to Stacey's request.  Could we possibly get a status update when you have a moment?  😀 Thanks!

In addition to ability to apply GYR, ability to roll-up/create a heat index chart or map in dashboard would be excellent.

Thanks Lisa.  I see that Wrike-Citrix has a new Board view being released in H1'2022. Can you check and see if this is included in that planned release?  Is there any way we could be notified if/when you have a beta release for the Board view changes.  We are becoming more Agile with our dev and how we manage projects and looking forward to seeing improvements in the functionality of board view.  Thanks again.

Feedback from the Agile team I work with is that color-coding tasks would be SUPER helpful to better visualize tasks on the Board view. Having the option to choose a color and not be limited by pre-defined list would be the most helpful option (ex: just a color palette like the Calendar view instead of options like "Red = past due"). That way the team can define what the colors mean OR individual team members could color code personal tasks on their own boards.

Just gonna join the chorus and say I'd love to be able to color code tasks, perhaps triggered off a custom field.
