Manually choose color-coding for boards displayed in Dashboard calendar view

Color coding is crucial to our efficiency, and the options that are auto-assigned are certainly not ADA compliant. PLEASE FIX

Hey @cdf !

**First of all, I would like to welcome you to the monday community!

To manually select & change the colors of ‘Dashboard Calendar View’, you need to click the HEX Color Code or the RGB Color Code option from your design tab in monday dot com. This will open a pop-up window where you can choose colors of your interest. By clicking apply option, you can change the color codes of your calendar dashboards. With color coding, you don’t have to create separate calendar boards for each projects and can easily discern activities based on colors. Experts with rich knowledge of Calendly monday integration can apply color codes to the calendar dashboards and deliver much more visually effective calendar widget for your team.

Thank you for this solution! :slight_smile: 1 question though, where can we find the Design tab to choose and apply the color for the boards in calendar widget. Is it from an app or template? Thanks in advance!

Would love to have the possibility to use different color setting in timeline view and the timeline widget. Currently the colors are based on the group color and I want them to use a status column (like green is done, red is overdue and so on). Both timeline view and timeline widget has a Group by … setting and the request is to add a Color by … setting which allows selecting a Status column.

Yes. I’m new to monday.com but this is one of the first limitations I have come across!

Yes, this would be SO great! Our team find it hard to use the monday timeline without this feature…

Hi all

This is a feature several customers are asking for. I don’t know why is no voted because is quite requested.

Do someone have some workaround but duplicate groups into the same board or duplicate boards and use dashboards?

Regards!

It would be tremendously helpful. The timeline is almost useless if you can’t see directly from it the status of each task.

Thank you!

Our team uses Monday.com to plan and manage upcoming events. Each event is a separate pulse in our event planning board. We use the calendar view a lot, both on a weekly and monthly to quickly see what events are upcoming and we like that we can drill down into the event from that view.

In the board view calendar, the color of the pulse is defined by which group it is in. In the calendar dashboard widget, the color of the pulse is defined by which board the pulse is in (color is assigned at random). In both cases we would like the ability to choose a status column that defines the color of the pulse in the calendar.

Hi @JTC, Josh

This is similar to Color coding timeline (and widget) with status color. There are more of these request, please thumb up the other ones :slight_smile:

Hello all- Melissa from monday here!

I think this is a great idea, and we are looking at the possibility of doing this internally. What you can do now within the dashboard is ‘color by’ and color by a specific column of your choosing. I understand this doesn’t get exactly what you are looking for, but hopefully this will help!
