Color coding category

Pasan Chandraweera March 26, 2024

Hey Im not sure if this was something I imagined. But I swear I had the ability to color code a category. I thought I did it and when I checked last I couldn't find how I did it. The beauty was at quick glance I could see a category appear on my cards in board view.

Hello @Pasan Chandraweera,

You can add and color categories on the tab List on the project view:

@Pasan Chandraweera, oh I see, maybe colors are available only for new categories... Can you create a new category and check if there is a color selection menu there?

Pasan Chandraweera March 27, 2024

@Kseniia Trushnikova Thanks for getting back to me. Yeah I tried that a few times and not seeing it appear. It's the strangest thing. According to that article it was released could they have reverted back?

@Abby Stiris wanted to check in on this to see if you have insight on this as I found this information in your November update.

@Pasan Chandraweera, I've checked Jira Work Management updates and found the one about colourful categories:

The status of this update is still "Rolling out", which may be the reason why this feature is not yet available on your Jira site. It's off the schedule though.

Ahh thanks for this!  It might of been a bit of AB Testing and I saw it briefly. Will have to keep tabs on it, it was super useful if anyone is listening in!

Hi @Pasan Chandraweera sorry for the delay! Colorful categories should be fully rolled out now. If you still don't see them, let me know. Thanks!

Pasan Chandraweera April 3, 2024

Hi @Abby Stiris ahh good to hear! I checked but still not seeing it. Any chance you could walk me through it? Im only seeing the ability to edit the name of the category and when I type a new category its not appearing either. 

Appreciate your response!

@Pasan Chandraweera when you click on the pencil icon to edit the category, do you see the colors come up? 

Pasan Chandraweera April 3, 2024

@Abby Stiris I don't see the colors appear, I can only edit the text like so:
