How to add more colours in the progress bar apart from Red/Yellow/Green?

The reason behind this is that we have created "QA verfied" between resolved and close status. QA will put issue to verified status once test pass, and customer will put to closed to sign off the issue. So we want to have visibility on the proportion of

Opened issues : Issues that still working by Dev and QA : Issue that ready for customer sign off: Issues sign off by customer

Currently there are only Red/Yellow/Green colors in the progress bar of the agile boards (See captrure). Is it possible to add more colors to it to indicate specific status that we have added ourselves?

If so, could you please tell us how? If not, how we can raise this as an enhancement or any suggestions on this?

You won't be able to add a 4th color. You can customize what each of three colors means for your project by changing the Task Board Mapping. Basically the Progress Bar will treat the leftmost column as the "To Do" column (red), the rightmost as "Done" (green). All columns in between will be aggregated and treated as "In Progress" (yellow).

See for more detail.

I think adding a column "QA verfied/Ready for Sign off" to the Task Board will give you some idea how many cards are ready for sign off vs how many have been signed off, but it's probably not the intuitive visual you are looking for.

Hi Danielle,

Thank you very much for the clarification and suggestion.
