Re: [Evolution] Background colours of tasks adapted to start dates

I am not sure that choosing the color with only one parameter is better. It may be appropriate for users that have numerous tasks to do in 1-2 days because they can check their tasks through the color associated to "due today" and "late". However for users that have numerous tasks spanning weeks it can be quite confusing. With the default color behaviors I have difficulties to see in a glance which tasks are ongoing and which ones are late.

Can anybody at least tell me if there is a way to change colors just based on "start date" rather than "due date"?
