Allow custom tags in custom fields to have different colors

I need to make some of my custom tags within custom fields different colors.  Please add this to the list, as a bunch of grey tags doesn't do much.

    You can now add colors to custom fields that use predefined or editable choice lists and tags. These fields can also be added to reports to highlight key information or to visualize how projects are progressing.

    Check out the blog post to learn more.

    This would help to easily identify the different tags we use. Also, it would be helpful to be able to watch the tags on the list of the board section and not only on the roadmap.

    Looks identical to https://big.ideas.aha.io/ideas/APP-I-1345 as well (which is erroneously marked "shipped").

    Would really help call out the differences tracked within custom fields on the board.

    This would be extremely beneficial for custom field tags list that are used for a status type of functionality. Example: Budget Custom field would show as red when "At Risk" is selected.

    Any update on this? When a custom tag field is added to a release the only color option is the default gray for each tag. Please make it so you can customize these colors just as you can within the feature/idea tag field. Thanks.

    https://big.ideas.aha.io/ideas/APP-I-3550 is also a duplicate. I've added comments there

    Agree with this.  Our product spans 3 distinct "domains" and our features are usually aimed at one (or two).  We have a custom field to track this, but associating colors to these tags would make them much easier to identify quickly.

    Would be helpful?  ETA?

    Our team was confused that this wasn't an option :(
