Colors. Again

Question to Atlasssian team: when do you anticipate to add the color picker functionality to customize labels/cards? 

I understand, there is no such a feature for now and there are lots of similar tickets. So far, I see the only possible way to solve this issue is to keep stalking Atlassians  to make it work finally. This does not seem to be a complicated feature hard to implement but the total ignorance of the Trello user community which requires this feature for years. Quite blindness approach keeping in mind that Notion and other pretty cool things are already on the market competing strong with Trello.

The only obstacle I could imagine that due to this changing it may require more resources to store all this stuff on the servers. If so and you don't wanna invest into the feature, at least, please do the following:

1) Enhance the basic set of colors at least twice.

2) Update the existing colors to something more fresh. The current colors are dull. You may consider using flat ui colors palette like this one:


Looking forward to your reply.

Hi Andre,

Thanks for reaching out!

You're right that there are probably a few similar questions about this in our community here. For some context, the biggest reason we haven't implemented that is that for every label color, Trello also provides accessible, color-blind friendly patterns, to help those who can't detect color differences be able to differentiate label colors.

In the meantime, one way you can differentiate between labels with the same color to display the names of the labels on your cards. Clicking on the label will show the name, and clicking on it again will hide it.



Hello Ryan,

What about enabling the function for boards that aren't shared, like our own personal Boards, giving people the option to turn on 'Expanded Color Picker' or whatever the devs wanna call it? Thank you.
