Using several colors in Topic status

Unread postby Nathalie Preininger » Tue Apr 04, 2017 12:57 pm

Hi,

I use the coloring feature in Topic status a lot and I set up a whole range of customized statuses. Sometimes I would like to use 2 colors on one section. For example to mark it as "Needs review" and "Update screenshot". Would it be possible to implement that?

Thanks for considering this

Best regards

Nathalie

Hi Nathalie,

Sorry, but each topic can only have one status at any one time. If you need a "double" status you need to define it yourself. Go to Configuration > Common Properties > Topic Status, select Add Status and then define your own Needs Review/Update Screenshot status with a custom color.

Important: Custom status is stored with the project, not globally. So you need to redefine it separately for each project. You can also use the Copy properties from... button at the bottom of the Topic Status screen to copy custom status from another project.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for your reply. I have been defining my own status(es) already, it would have reduced the number of colors quite a bit if it had been possible to use several colors on one status.
But that's okay, I'll continue working in a multicolored environment :D

Best regards,
Nathalie
