    Moving to Feature Requests.

    This is currently scheduled for 1.13 as well as allowing more color options using a color picker widget for Pipeline Step colors.

    That would be really useful, but in my case I like to color the gantt chart by people, as in "Andy" is always pink etc. I already color the rows automatically this way but it would be great to have the gantt chart look that way too.

    I just ran into the need for this but to color by either sequence or the shoot stage, depending on view.

    As a proposal... it would be NICE if entities other than task had a color field (one you could use the color picker to populate) and then on the gant view you could 'color by' just like you can 'group by' in the list mode.  Thus for a given page I could choose to color by a lookup to a linked entity.  That would allow for what I'd need, coloring by assigned to, and should work for pipeline step as well (what I'd guess the original request translates into since those have been introduced).

    Would be cool!

    Gavin/Bryan, as of our 2.3 Release, you can set your Gantt bar color to match the Task's Pipeline Step. We've expanded the color options as well, so you can now choose from a color picker editor.

    Sebastian/Rob, expanding upon this feature set would be great, whether it be conditional formatting on the Gantt bar color or as Rob, you proposed, a way to assign colors to entity types and choosing it as you can now with the Pipeline Step color. We'll keep you all posted...

    Hey Bonsak, we'll keep this thread updated on new developments. We have an internal ticket (SG #10319) to support rule-based color formatting for Gantt Bars. As for everyone else, thanks for the use-cases, and apologies for the delays!

    Hello,

    I guess I'm not the only one who's having a suggestion on adding coloring rules for Gantt bars, similar to the one we have for  cells and rows.

    Right now, we're using daemon to switch Gantt bar color according to its task status, but it would be nice to have already tested and implemented feature with easy to set up and change UI. Check picture for details.
