How to enable board members to easily understand colour labels

I use colour labels for cards to display who should engage in certain topics.
Obviously for newcomers it is not selfexplanatory which colour refers to which person using the common board.

Thus I´m wondering how I could assist those in need to easily understand that concept.

First I thought to fill in another list which is just displaying as a legend the colourcoding.
However I assume there are other and better ways you have yet tried successfully...


Thx in advance!

Hi Andreas,

If you go to the right hand menu on a board, click "More", and then "Labels", you can create a custom label with a color and name. When you add that label on a card, its name will show up too, like so:

Hope that helps,


Thx a million Jireh...that does the job!!! Best wishes/ Andreas

No problem! And one more tip: You can click on a label on the card front (like the screenshot is showing), and it will collapse all labels. This makes all labels a bit smaller and also hides the label name. To un-collapse them, just click the label again.

GREAT...good to know that too! Thx again Jireh!!
