Priority headings

The names of the Priority levels--Priority 1, Priority 2, Priority 3, Priority 4--can be edited in the settings, but the edited names do not appear on the Start page. They continue to display at the top of lists as Priority 1, etc. Is it possible to change how they display?

Hi,

Could you please clarify where you are renaming these Priorities? Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to change the name "Priority" to something else.

Thanks,
Brendon.

This is in Todoist for Android.

In the left hand pane (with the black background), I choose the Filters tab, select the Manage Filters gear at the bottom left, and tap the pencil-shaped Edit icon next to each Priority. In the resulting edit dialog, I can change either the name or the abbreviation. The Priority names change in the black pane, but not in the displays on the right, with the white background.

Hi,

Thank you for the clarification. Yes this is possible in our Android app. I can confirm it does not change it while on the actual view.

I have let the developers know about, I am not sure if this is done on purpose or is indeed a bug.

I will keep you updated.

Thanks,
Brendon.

Hello,

This is the intended outcome.

The left panel and the title at the top will show the custom name. The list itself consists of tasks broken into the sections/views according to your filter. Those have pre-defined names ("Priority X", "Overdue", a specific date, a project's name, etc).

Thanks,
Brendon.

Will this useful renaming feature be available on all platforms inc. web / mac?

Hello Nick,

It's already available on mobile and we're working on implementing it to the web. Once there, the style will of course apply to all our plugins, apps, add-ons etc.


Best regards,
David

good afternoon
I think if you make the priorities of different colors, like a traffic light, it will be more convenient.
Red - a very important
Yellow - medium priority
Green - not very important
light blue - to do when you have time.

Re Andrey's comment, I really hope bright red, orange and yellow will be options (as well as no colour) as I find those three reflect degrees of intensity really well and make the most sense to me intuitively (some other to do apps I've tried employed those colours for levels of importance and that always made the most sense to me).

I second this red: urgent, orange: important, yellow: of interest (highlighted), blue or light blue: whenever ("in the sky") ...

It is not only most natural but it is a natural color scale intensification on the light spectrum.

Do a test: ask people to sort red, orange, and yellow in terms of urgency, importance and simply "of special interest" but not urgent.

Out of 100 people I'm guessing 100 would pick red-orange-yellow.

I could be wrong though.

I agree, it should be possible to rename and choose different colors for priorities.

Hi, I agree about the 4 colours. I'll try to start a Vote Box. If I do, I'll return here and post the Vote Box suggestion title.

So, the priority colours should be:

Post-box Red

Bright Yellow

Vivid Green

no colour
