Color Code lists and tasks
Color Code list and tasks
Here`s a mock-up...
Color Lists - For better visual separation of Business, Personal, Goals, etc...
Color items - Assign items to different people, groups, departments, categories, etc...
I did a quick piece of work in Photoshop with my Starred list. I added different colors and think this would be so much nicer for further organizing beyond just the red. This forum doesn't allow for attachments, but you can see what I did here: http://factusimages.jimdo.com/test/
What do you think of something like this?
why are they ignoring this request.
For example, if you have a list shared with another user, it would be easier if you could quickly see that one task was especially made for either you or another person.
... add feature of coloring lists or tasks. this way use will be more productive if you choose to use them. Othervise you can use it the old way.

Nested lists - YES, colour coding - no, keep it simple. Colors and priorities bring in more chaos - David Allen (GTD founder) was against priorities. What you have to do, you have to do, we don't need more decisions while working.

It's a great and very often demanded idea. But, please, "keep it simple".
I just installed Wunderlist and I REALLY need nested lists. Without this feature, the tool is subpar for my use.
nested lists and color codes!!!! pleaseeeeeeeeeee - this would make the app 100% amazing.

love it, need it now
The simplest idea would be to offer different colored star ribbons besides just red.
and also color codes for list of tasks

This mock-up would be useable on all devices if they would be collapsable.
So you can hide the subtasks you wouldn't like to see.
Vlad, not only do I think your idea is ingenious, but I LOVE your mock-up! It's beautiful AND shows perfectly what you're suggesting! Thank you!
Nested lists would be nice. I have a great deal of tabs in chrome that keep track of products that I want or would like to bookmark (seems like a similar use to the mock-up that you linked to), but I feel that a list like wunderlist would be a more organized way to review them. Only thing hindering that kind of use in this app is the fact that nesting only extends three levels to sub-tasks. My list of computer parts for a theoretical future build goes 6 folders deep at points.
They would have to find a feasible way to implement it cross-platform though. Your idea would be wonderful on the desktop and tablet platforms, but when you get down to phones, visiting each nested list would need to take you to a new list page to retain readability and functionality in portrait orientation.
Yes! I have trouble looking at my daily overview without either a color or icon. This should be able to be done without overly complicating things and be even more visually appealing. I kind of like to look at an overview with the visual of if I have a lot of orange things, I have a lot of chores to do. Or, several green things means I might be spending quite some time shopping. So, I assign the color or icon to the list. I could probably live without assigning unique colors to individual tasks - the star system works well enough for me for that.
YES!!! This would be PERFECT!
For instnace, my finances:
Green - Paid
Red - Not Paid
OR: My list of passwords. Orange = Wordpress, Red = Something else, etc.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give us the abilty to color code lists and tasks!!!!

This would be a great new feature to add, and should be a relatively simple one i think, but with a huge impact for users.
To keep it visually atractive, i would suggest just adding a sort of color headlight at the left or right of the task, so it's easily identifiable, and doesnt create a 'rainbow' unatractive tasklist.
Keep up the great work!
Being able to colorize a list-item would be great. Just give it a little "choose from 12 colors"-thing like the one in the bottom right corner (the one for choosing a background). Won't be that difficult to implement I guess? Don't do a colorpicker (which let you choose every color there is) only, it's inconvenient to choose the exact same color every time, and it also takes more time then just pick a color from a list with a few pre-selected colors.
It's great for many things, like:
- Prioritizing items
- When sharing a list: "I do the red items, you do the blue ones"
- The current state of the task: "orange is 50% done, green 75%"
