More obvious colours in card view

I’d like the colour feature in card view to be more obvious. Scanning up and down in a highly-populated card view, it is easy to miss the thin colour bars.

Perhaps you might consider a fuller outline, or an entire colour fill (light shade, such that font contrast isn’t affected too much.

Thanks for considering

I agree. It works well in table view where the entire row changes color. Would be nice to have the same option in other views.

Thanks for linking @Oshyan , in fact I’m not really sure where this request and mine of [APROVED] Color Coding of entire Card/Entity, not just “bar” of color that you referenced actually differ? I’d be in favor of merging the two and trying to get this more front-and-center, especially as it’s marked “approved”.

Thanks!

The only difference, if I’ve understood correctly, is yours was showing Timeline and this one refers to “Card View” (Kanban, I presume). But in reading your text there, perhaps you just showed that particular example because it has the further issue of sometimes having the color bar not even visible?

Anyway, merging makes sense to me. But not something I can do.

Thank you @Oshyan for the usual attentive analysis of these things!! I 100% would like to see colors in the card view per @HSinger. My post on the other thread is just highlighting another area where better colorizing could help out, as in the timeline view the “line” can disappear. Fibery has a very nice UI, and I think a few tweaks around color could really take it to another level, especially for people that need convincing, or need to get used to Fibery, and this color-coding would achieve a good deal of this. Especially in light of competitors, who have very little effective implementation of color, like Notion or Coda (Roam too, in a big way as color is hard to implement there), or others like ClickUp which has some awkward use of color IMO, although it’s more easy to get at it than these other tools.

And incidentally, I mention ClickUp because they are clearly headed down the road of the atomic element being an “entity” like in Fibery, vs. a “task” as is currently the case. For those interested (@Oshyan you commented on Clickup of late…), I’m referring to their big announcement of a 3.0 version soon, and also just look at these items on their roadmap and tell me they are not trying at least to go more “generic” with the atomic element and generally attack Fibery-like features…
