NEW FEATURE: Automatically Set Task Bar Color based off of Who is Assigned

This has been a highly requested feature for some time and now it’s live!

You can click on the People tab at the top of your project to set a default color for each person on your team.  Once you do this, each task that you assign to that person or resource will automatically become the color that you selected.

Note: You have the option if you would like the change to affect tasks already assigned or if you would just like the change to affect new tasks assigned to that person.

One of the big questions that we always had with this was how to handle when multiple people are assigned to the same task.  Do we make the bar multiple colors? Stripes? It all started to feel complicated.  So in good TeamGantt fashion, we decided to keep things simple.  Whoever is last assigned to the task will determine the color of the task bar.  You can of course still manually change the color of the task as well if you don’t want it to be based off of that.

We hope you like this new feature!  This release also includes a number of little bug fixes and little enhancements as well. If you have any feedback, let us know in the comments below!
