Change icons of other collaborators

Is there a way to change the icons of people you are collaborating with (without forcing them to add their own pictures)? I have two colleagues who both have initials "DS". Tasks assigned to either of them show up with the letters "DS" over the same shade of green, so there is no easy way to tell them apart. Is it possible to change the color that Todoist assigns to someone?

Hi Scott,

There is no way to change this at this time. I don't believe it would get added either, as we don't want to override what the user would choose.

What is causing the choice of shade of color currently? Is it just the initials that determines the color? All of the other collaborators I work with have other colors, so I don't understand why these two have identical initials with identical colors.

Hello Scott,

Yes, the initials define the color. If they can't upload a photo, not even a blank avatar with a solid empty background color, then the only option would be to ask them to change the name they've used during registration.

Best regards,
