How can i change the color of versions so they are uniq instead of all the same Edited

In the backlog view, stories show up w/ two small colored box, one for the epic the story is under and the other for the version (a.k.a. "Fix Version/s") that the story is in. 

I know how to change the color for epics.  You click "epics" in the backlog view, then click on the ... next to the epic and it pulls up the color palette to change the color. 

But I can't seem to change the color of versions.  Instead they are all grey.  And doing the above, when clicking the ..., I only get "edit name".  Having different/uniq colors for the version is very valuable just like for the epic colors.

I also tried at the "releases" page where versions are created but dont see it there either..

Hi @MC 
What is the value of seeing colored versions?

My Understanding is for Epics there are assorted colors because a sprint may have stories from different epic, hence for the differentiation a color is given.

Same reasoning.  We have parallel efforts going on.  So working not only different epics in the same sprint, but different versions.  So color differentiation would be very useful.

But, the idea of a Sprint is to have a valuable and usable version.! (one perfect release in the end, one Ship)
If you have multiple versions in a sprint, you may not realize potential of scrum for a good delivery.

I suggest trying the below if it is possible at your end:
1. try to have your sprint backlog with the same version (even if its from different epics they should belong to one connected Release version number)
2. if you are having multiple versions in a sprint, it means you are working on different independent products (in that case your team must decide why scrum?)
(like a 5-member team working on 2 or 3 applications)
