How do I change the color of my labels?


How do I change colors of my labels? They all come out green now and I'd like them to stand out more.

Hello Robin,

To change the colors of your labels, simply click on the @ sign in the top-left corner below the search box and you'll see a list of all your labels. Now, right-click on a label and choose the color from the context menu.

Best regards,

no matter what I do, my labels remain green.
If I try to edit the label and change the color I get back the "You already have a label with that name."
If I try to delete and add new label, what ever I select, label ends up green...
I don't have any "@ sign in top left corner below the search box"

is the label colouring only available for an specific platform?
I have Windows and Android OS and it looks I'm not able to change their colour.

I just joined Todoist and I can't change the color of the labels.

This issue seems to have been a problem since 2013?

I am evaluating Todoist for Business and a 14 day trial. Hope this gets
resolved as it raises a red flag already for me.
