Trello Labels with Unlimited Color Selections

S B I'm New Here Jan 18, 2020

I've been using Trello for several years now—while waiting (and waiting) for an update on one of the most basic and popular Trello tools, Trello Labels and limitations on colors.

Why are we still restricted to utilizing the SAME predefined ten colors for Trello's Labels?

Currently, there are numerous other similar apps, which also provide the Labels tool—and have implemented (one of the most basic) current industry standardized features—which allows users to have an unlimited number of colors to apply to their Labels (i.e. selecting colors from a color wheel, OR simply entering in the numerical HEX value for your personal color choice.)

When can we expect to receive this update for Trello Labels?

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.

While it would be wonderful to allow any color combination for labels on Trello, we wouldn't be able to provide color-blind patterns for all of those combinations, unfortunately, and it would be especially difficult to ensure that any new, custom label color on one person's computer showed the same pattern as on another person's computer.

Our team is actively working to investigate different ways for us to both continue our accessibility pushes, as well as adding more label colors, but we'll be very careful about how that might be implemented.
