Asana team please please add colour text options, I really like using Asana but as you can tell from ALL the comments from back in October 2018 this would be a really useful feature. It is rather frustrating that it is 2023 and nothing has been done

2023 NEEDS COLOR TEXT OPTION IN TASK DESCRIPTIONS!!!

Seriously, this seems like such a simple fix. You have a rich text editor. It is lacking in two VERY important functions

1 - TEXT colors. It is extremely difficult to implement any sort of standards within body text. We use all sorts of efforts from lines to asterisks to tabbing text to strikeout text etc to TRY to differentiate within task descriptions. It is all very confusing because there is no ONE way. It would be so much more organized if we could use color with text because as a company we could standardize what certain colors are used for within task descriptions and like MAGIC everything becomes very well organized, task descriptions are much easier to read and decipher team to team, etc. PLEASE DO THIS!!! IT’S BEEN OVER 4 YEARS!!!

2 - Text indent. You have paragraph, bulleted and numbered lists but this one is missing. This would be helpful in aligning indented text rather than having to count out tabs. Less important, but still needed to help with formatting efficiency.

I agree having access to a limited number of colors would be nice (but not too many!) Currently we bold / caps / emojis to create emphasis, but sometimes you want to write a warning in red or a friendly note in blue to separate it from a lot of text. :grinning:

Yes, I have a colleague that is very important on our team and she is severely dyslexic, what can really help with asana is coloured text to help with organising her priorities

Could we please be provided with an update as to when we can expect to the option of selecting different colours for text (tasks etc) in Asana? Could you publish your roadmap of changes with the expected delivery dates please?

Really simple idea, something I want to do often in my notes in tasks that I continually add more detail to or change, or where there are ‘in description’ reminders - would love to simply be able to highlight text in the description field.

wow - just had my suggestion merged into this task that is from YEARS AGO! Not sure there’s much point in making suggestions?

I would really love to have rich text options. At a minimum some basic colours. So frustrating that this can’t be done.

It really can’t be that hard to add HTML and CSS to a text editor can it?

Still hoping this will be done!! Desperately need the ability to add colours and or highlighter to text in both comments and task descriptions. Especially for big projects!

Same question and issue as everyone. We do need colour to be used in text in Asana. Would be very helpful indeed! Any plans from Asana on this subject?

:rainbow:Upvote colors!

Really surprised this isn’t already a feature

It’s quite frustrating and disheartening to see that even after garnering 146 upvotes and patiently waiting for two years, Asana has failed to incorporate a basic feature like text colors, which many users have been requesting. This lack of responsiveness to user needs is a significant shortcoming.Maybe we should all 146 start considering other solutions.

2024 over here still waiting for this feature :innocent:

2025 over here still waiting for this feature… :sweat_smile:

@ Asana - PLEASE add this feature soon! I really would love this, it would improve workflow & competitors such as Monday do have it so I am not sure why it’s not included when most rich text editing software in this day and age lets you highlight or adjust colors

it’s literally been 6 years :smiling_face_with_tear:
