Priority color bars need improvement ...


As implemented in the current version, I find the priority color bars far too narrow to effectively see ... they either need to be made wider, or the text itself needs to be in color. It would also be helpful to have a visual indication of the assigned color in the priority pick wheel.

I also wonder about the names assigned to the four priorities, ranging from "normal" to "emergency." Is there no such thing as a low-priority task in Todoist? :) My suggestion:

4 -- No priority assigned (and no color)
3 -- Low
2 -- Moderate
1 -- High

I like the prioritizing suggestions made by Mark. I also wish we could choose our own priority colours (most apps typically use red for highest priority items, followed by orange and then yellow, and then no colour for items with no priority). Todoist's use of green and blue as priority indicators have never made any sense to me. PLEASE implement this as an option on your web app as well.

I would love the option to disable priority colors entirely!

I agree. It would be great if the priority bars could be made wider. It is especially hard to differentiate between items that are priority 3 and priority 2 when they are next to each other.

Please make that Priority color indicator bar WIDER!!! or something else!!! it's almost useless the way it is today.

The bars are so narrow at present that they are almost imperceptible. Even doubling the width of them would be a start, and wouldn't compromise the space needed for text.

Yes, red orange and yellow make more sense and the priority indicator bar should be wider. Please :-)

yes they have to be wider - they are useful (that's why todoist created them!) but stop being useful if you can't see them! (I can't see at all on my iphone - they are so thin they look like part of the edge if my screen)

that was my main concern, but I also agree red/orange/yellow/none is far more intuitive. matching coloured text would be good too, particularly if we can't see the side coloured bars!

Surely increasing the width of the coloured side bars is easy (as noted above- there is space there for this) and has no downside for anybody?
