If you’re new to Trello, you might not have used labels yet (in which case, you’re going to want to- because they’re super powerful ways to filter information on your boards), or maybe you’ve started and gone label-happy and don’t want to re-use colors and feel a bit stuck.
Meanwhile, if you’ve been here in the community for a while, chances are you’ve seen someone make a comment about the “lack of label options” in Trello. While personally it’s never been an issue for me, it really does break my heart a little bit every time I see someone stop using Trello because they feel limited by the label options.
Because of that, anytime someone asks “what’s one feature you wish Trello would implement?” - more labels has been my answer! Well my dream for all Trello users came true today, because Trello is officially releasing more label color options for a total of 30 colors now!
We’re going from 10 options to 30 by introducing more shades of the colors that you’ve grown to love. You can now get lighter and darker shades, unlocking even more opportunities to style your boards.
Those of you who know me know that I’m a pretty passionate Trello user and community member, and when I started seeing some questions about the label changes in Trello, the product team asked if I’d be interested in helping announce this launch to the community. To which I said…
Want to see it instead of just reading about it? I recorded this quick demo showing what they look like and how to add them to your cards.
I can’t answer everything, but I’ll do my best, and if you have additional questions, comment below and I’ll do my best to address them or make sure Atlassian folks are able to!
Trello wants to organize everyone's feedback on this so they can work on the next version of labels that hopefully addresses what everyone is looking to see. If you go to your Trello boards and underneath labels, you'll see a button for Leave Feedback. If you can go click that and share your feedback - preferably in a constructive way of what you'd like to see :) - I know that will be really helpful for the team to have all of that organized!
