Color names when hovering for color blind people

It would be really great if hovering over a color in Monday’s color pickers would show the color name.
This feature exists in many products and is tremendously helpful for color blind people like me :slight_smile:
Thank you!

I would find this helpful too - I don’t have a great short-term memory, so sometimes when I’m trying to make a few columns with matching colors I forget exactly which shade I used. Being able to name them precisely (or at least having the colors organized in a way that made sense) would help cut down on double-checking that I used the proper shade of light blue.

It’s much easier to remember specifics like “periwinkle” or “second one on third row” than “one of the lighter shades, I think it was on the right side of the pallet, unless it wrapped when I changed another color.”

This is something I’m really struggling with as a color blind person. It’s ok when it’s just you, but it’s especially difficult when working in a team as I find it hard to follow when people are referring to color status, or ask me to setup new colors etc.

This is incredible crucial!

As soon as I created a Monday.com account, this is the first feature I looked for. Glad I’m not the only one struggling with this one. Colorblindness affects 1 in 12 men, so this would be very helpful for a lot of users!

Better UI for everyone (including colorblind) would be a color grid.

  1. ROY G BIV + Black/Gray/White columns going side to side.
  2. light => dark gradient rows going up and down.

Since this is a project management tool, colors should often have meaning. Make it easier for everyone to pick out meaningful colors with a color grid.

For example, Google Docs uses this color grid. It also has a very helpful onhover color name that several other folks have mentioned previously.

This a minimum, but ideally, just give the option to toggle colors on/off. The colors are a problem for members of my team, and even though I see colors, the contrast with the light colors is ridiculous, and it’s a drag having to change the color on everything you create. I would cease using this tool for the colors alone, if my organization didn’t mandate it.

I am also colorblind, and this is a much needed feature. I submitted a feature request for this today, then came out here and noticed it’s been discussed for over a year with no action. Not even a reply from staff, which is disheartening, especially for an accessibility issue which affects 8 - 9% of the population.
