Control Due Date colors

Hi,

Tasks due for Today show up as Green. Also tasks due for Tomorrow appear green. I would like to change that, tomorrow due tasks should be a different color.

Overdue Tasks are Red. I would like today’s due tasks be Red and Overdue tasks perhaps a bold red color.

Any ideas how do I get that?

Hi @Jonathan_Fain :wave:

As it stands, it is not possible to modify the color on the Due dates. I’m moving your post to the #productfeedback category so you and other users can vote for this idea. I hope it’s OK.

If you wish you to, you can add your vote by clicking on the “Vote” button at the very top of the thread!

Have a great Friday Jonathan! :slight_smile:

Currently Asana only changes the color of a date ranges (as red) once the end date has past. Also when ordering tasks by due date, these ranges are placed at the end of the list via the end date rather than the start date.

My recommendation is to color coat these date ranged due dates a tertiary color (maybe yellow) once the start date is passed and placing these in order using the start date rather than the end date.

Reason being, my eyes follow the list downwards and if I have a task with a range of Dec 4th - 7th but it shows at the end of the list (and without a color differentiation), I might as well should have opted for a due date on the 7th rather than a range.

I love this idea, I will occasionaly task my interns things in date range (them knowing it is not priority) but they tend to not see them because they fall down their list. If they have extra time, they would have worked on it. Making them yellow (or similar color) after the start date, or moving them using start date would be helpful for us as well.

I’m merging your posts with an existing thread regarding this topic to avoid duplications. I hope it’s OK.
