Feature Idea: More Colors for Projects and Columns

Hey everbody,

pretty basic idea: Are you going to plan to add more colors for Meistertask projects and columns? eg. like in Mindmeister, we would love to see some more variations of each color group, since this would make the big number of projects and columns we are using a lot easiert to visualize the way we use it in our company.

Thank you!

    Thanks for the suggestion @philipgossner , and welcome to the community! 👋 There's nothing on our roadmap currently related to the default number of colors in columns, but we've actually started to hear from several users who have very large projects with many sections - sounds like the main issue is similar to what @Michael Heil raised in this thread. When a project has a ton of sections it can be hard to maintain an overview! I'll raise this with our MT product manager. 👍

    Hey @philipgossner you've got my vote! I think this sounds like a really simple way to make big projects easier to understand. Thanks for sharing!

    Hello @Philip Gossner, according to another conversation I'm aware of, all these feature requests will be considered after the new Sub Tasks and Task Dependencies get released.

    You can see what I mean in this link of another request which has even more supporters.

    Best regards.

    Got my voice, @Philip Gossner I like to group sections, and with shades of green or blue or yellow a section is easy and instantly perceived as part of a group of sections.
