List colour highlight option

C'mon Atlassian team, we need a list colour function !! 

I can use the "List Highlighter for Trello" Chrome extension but this could possibly have me be open to hacking. Why can't Atlassian offer a Trello native function?

What is wrong with you guys?... is Trello an abandoned project or are you saying we should look for a replacement to Trello?

Hey @George 


thanks for the suggestion. Can you describe your use case for this functionality and how it helps your workflow?

Why can't Atlassian offer a Trello native function?

We could, but despite how simple it seems, a feature like this still takes a lot of time and testing to implement. It needs to work for all our users, on web, desktop and mobile. It needs to be accessible, it needs to support people who have difficulty telling colors apart (like myself).

Spending this time on list colors means we can't spend time on other features, and list colors just hasn't been as highly requested as some of the other stuff we're working on.

is Trello an abandoned project

No, there's been growing investment in Trello over the time I've been on the team, and we've been working hard to make continuous improvements to the product.




What ever, in any case thanks for your lame reply.
