Use colors for your queues and tags

Use colors to stay organized

Color coding can be a great way to sort your queues and tags.

When you’re working with a team on multiple projects, tags let your teammates know important details at first glance.

You can make tags for priority levels, to sort tasks by key themes, or just to keep track of different kinds of tasks you’re working with. For example, using red, yellow, and green to indicate high, mid, and low priority tasks.

Use tags to categorize your tasks by priority.

Colors can also help you easily distinguish between different queues. You can use shades of colors to keep track of teams. In this example, queues colored in shades of green represent members of the Philosophy Club team.

Use colors to differentiate between queues.

This is especially helpful when you’re creating Smart Queues and your tasks from multiple different queues are being combined in a single list.

Using color makes it easier to identify which tasks belong to which queues.

When using Smart Queues, use colors to help distinguish queues.

Change queue color

To change the color of your queue, simply open the queue menu and click Change color.

Change a queue color from the queue dropdown menu.

Select your desired color, and that’s it!

Change tag color

Changing tag colors is just as easy. Hover your cursor over the tag name in the left-hand panel and open the menu to change the color of the tag. Click change color.

Change a tag color from the dropdown menu.

Then, select your desired color.

This change will be reflected across all tasks using that tag.

See your color changes in action.

Colors are a great way to stay on track and identify themes across the many tasks and projects you and your team are working with. See how you can use colors to get even more organized! 🌈
