Are there any color coding features in todoist?


I find some color really helps to make the whole to do list process more pleasant, uplifting and interesting. Are there any color coding options in todolist? Or at least some way to change the grey/black background to a more enlivening color on the todolist platform? Thank you.

+1 for colour coding. I would like it if my tasks had a back ground that was the same colour as the project's colour.

Unfortunately, there's no color-coding for tasks themselves (aside from priorities - right-click on a task to select one), but you can color-code projects and labels and in every view, you will see the appropriate color of the related project or label.

To color-code a project, right-click on it, choose "Edit" and click on the gray circle. Same applies to labels.

Best regards,
