Can Statuses use the same colour

Is there anyway in either a dropdown or status column to have choices with the same colour?

I have about 12 choices which are in 4 groups. So I would like choice1, choice2 and choice3 all being the same one colour (say all blue), the choice4, choice 5 and choice 6 all being another colour (say all amber), and so on…

Any way I can do this because at the moment it seems that when you add to the status or dropdown list you can only select the remaining colours, i.e. you can no longer select a colour already used.


This is currently the way it works. But, this has been an often requested feature. Here is one place where you can vote to add the feature: Allow same color be used for different statuses within the same status column
