Extra colors for boards?


Hi all,

I would like to add extra colors to my different boards (in work management). Right now I only seem to be able to use grey, blue and green.

How can I add extra colors to this?

(I am on a team managed project)

Hi @Milou van Aal and welcome to the Community!

Can you be more specific as to what colors you are referring to? Grey, blue and green are the colors used for status categories and they represent to do (grey), in progress (blue) and done (green). Those cannot be modified.

To change the background color of your entire project view, you can use the color picker next to the board title:

There's a lot more colors there; but somehow I suppose that is not what you are looking for?

Hope this helps!

Yes I was looking for colors for status categories. So that I have more different colors when I view everything on my timeline. But thanks for your reply!

The grey, blue, and green you mentioned are the board's status colors, right? I don't think it can change color.

Thanks for your reply. Too bad I can't change them, but I'll have to think of another solution.
