Predefined choice list. - item color


I have created custom fields with type Predefined choice list.
I want to allocate a color to each item of the list just the same way you can do it for tags.

Is it possible?
If yes, would like to understand how to do this?
If no, is it plan in the near future.

    Thanks for the idea!

    You can assign colours to predefined field choices after the custom field has been created.

    1. Go to Account settings > Custom fields

    2. Select the predefined custom field you would like to apply colours to

    3. Select Manage choices in the modal

    4. Assign colours to each choice

    As you mentioned, we've added many customization options throughout Aha!, particularly in how it relates to the colors for various items.

    In regards to the Kanban board, if you are referring to the colors of the status headers at the top of the page, this is possible to customize the colors by going to Account settings -> configure status, workflows and feature types. By selecting on the specific workflow, you can then select the color customizations.

    However, in regards to the pre-defined choice list, we are unlikely to make changes to this specific dropdown object in the near-term, primarily due to our strategic initiatives and feedback from the community.

    I really like this idea, especially now that the "workflow" kanban board has been introduced.  I would like to be able to have the cards colored based on a standard or custom filter of my choice.
