To use different colors in a roadmap, select the Colors tab from either the timeline or swimlane view.

Colors are assigned with reference to fields, so in order to change colors a roadmap must have a field created. To read about creating fields see here.

Roadmaps can be enhanced with a native palette, or a custom palette can be created.

Setting Colors

Colors can be used as an additional data pivot as well as being used to make a roadmap more visually appealing. Select a field in the Color By box.

Native Palettes

Choose one of the Roadmunk palette options: Citrus, Groovy or Ocean.

Drag the field labels to different positions to change colors according to the palette settings using the grips (3 lines to the far right of the Value name).

Custom Palettes

Open the Palette menu and select Palette+

Set Name

Name the new palette something unique and identifiable. Palettes are shared across all users and all roadmaps in an account, so keep palettes well organized. Copy the starting colors from an existing palette.

Select ColorsĀ 

Click a hue and tone to color each item. The color is sampled in the Select button inside the frame.

Using HEX

  • Type a color name into the text box above the select button. Roadmunk recognizes HTML color names.
  • Paste or type a hex color code into the text box.

Sharing Color Palettes

Color palettes are shared across all users and all roadmaps in an account. Team members and other roadmaps can also use the saved color scheme. Other users will automatically see them in the dropdown menu alongside the native palettes.

Color Legend

When viewing roadmaps, the legend nests as a small tab on the right side of the screen. It is available in both the timeline and the swimlane

Select the Legend tab to open the legend and display the current colors as well as the field by which they are colored.

Please note: The legend will automatically display on any published or exported roadmap.
