Colors on the timeline bars in Portfolio 3

On this article, section Viewing dependencies in the timeline, there seem to be 2 colours in the bar. Can anyone tell me what i would need to configure to get them to show like that and what they represent?


Thanks in advance!

Hello Marynel,

The colors can be set using the "View Settings" drop down:

Check out the Documenttaion "Customizing view settings" for more details on the setting.


Right. I've seen the section Color by. 

More specifically, I wanted to know how to do the multiple colours on a single bar, that is only possible when doing it by Components or Labels, right? I ticket will belong to 2 different labels, therefore its bar will display both colours

Hi Marynel,

Thanks for the clarification, and using "color by" values of Component or labels will allow for multi color track identifiers in the timeline.  Basically adding color options for values that can have multiple values int he same field, EXE:
