More colors for projects


need more colors, including black and some of the primary colors, not just the pastel colors.

A colour-wheel to pick any colour we wanted, would be great!

While your at it, maybe some icons too would be neat

Also, some of the colors are repetitive (two versions of orange almost exactly the same). More variety of shades (light green, regular green, dark green) would be very helpful.

This should really be a feature, I find it bizzare how there are so little colours to choose from and so many of them are pointlessly similar.

Love the icons idea!

For me the beauty of Todoist is also in its pastel colours. Please, if you will be changing the layout or adding something, leave the possibility of having it just like it is now ; )

Mike, huge +1! And the same thing for labels, please! :)

we've added 12 new project colors and 5 new label colors to Todoist. This improvement is available for Todoist Premium Customers.

Thank you very much for all your feedback and suggestion, we hope this change will help you improve the visualization of your productivity and the overview of your tasks.


Best regards,

You should just have a Colour Picker so we can pick and chose whatever colour we want. ;)

Please add a colour picker or HTML color code function!

- Colour Picker would be the correct feature
- The colours should be equal accross all platforms (right now i can set colors on the Android App that cannot be reproduced on the web version, resulting in a mess)

Color picker would be nice

The more I use labels, the more I think there really needs to be more freedom for colors. One of the best features of Todoist is the clean design. My guess is there are a lot of folks out there who pick the tool because they are SUPER visual and distracted by unnecessary elements. Like me! :-) I need the ability to 'subdue' the labels so they are not 'screaming' at me at the bottom of each task.

Thank you!

Another +1.

More colours would definitely be useful.

available colors should be consistent and similar for both projects and tasks. Please keep simple option to label project, and to expand label to project tasks.

Even more colours/distinctly different nuances please!

I have given each of my top-level folders a bright colour, and then the sub-folders have nuances of that colour so I can see they are related, but can still tell them apart in the Karma lines. However, I have run out of colours and nuances. It is a great idea, but I wish there were more colours.
