How can I change the color of a project on the Roadmap

Elena March 12, 2021

Hello ! I am the Roadmap view on which I have 2 projects.
They have 2 different colors (purple and blue) but the difference between them is too small, so I would like to change the colors to better see which epic belongs to which project.
Do you know where I can update this ?
Many thanks for your help

Hi @Elena ,

Unfortunately it's only possible to pick customer colours when using colour by Component or Label options, the colours assigned in all other options are selected from a limited palette. However, I'll raise this with our design team as I agree that some of the colours are very close and hard to distinguish between,

Regards,
Dave

Still having this issue 3 years later. Is there a feature request that I can upvote for this?

Hi @Elena 

My understanding is that the roadmap colors match the epic colors.  Have you tried changing the colors assigned to your epics?

Best regards,

Bill

Unfortunately this isn't true for issues appearing in Advanced Roadmaps plans, @Bill Sheboy ... but I think is true for issues appearing on the standard Roadmap associated with a board.

@Dave  -- Thanks for clarifying that for me.  Curious design choice and I could see that difference causing confusion for teams moving from Standard to Premium licensing.

@Bill Sheboy Advanced Roadmaps was originally a Server offering that we brought to Cloud as a result of its success there. It was developed somewhat independently of Roadmaps with different use cases in mind. Advanced Roadmaps offers more colouring options than Roadmaps and uses these to address different use cases. It's also worth remembering that the Epic hierarchy level can contain more than just the standard Epic issue type and Advanced Roadmaps is somewhat attempting to normalise issue types within the view.

Having said that, I do acknowledge that this is a potential point of confusion and a difference between the two tools - however, it's not clear to what extent this would be a problem but something we'll investigate. We have been working to try and "harmonise" the UX of the two offerings as they've been brought together but I'm not aware that this particular colouring issue is something that is being considered at the moment.

Regards,
Dave
