Exploring Color Customization in Motion: Enhancing Visual Organization


Color customization plays a significant role in enhancing visual organization and providing a personalized experience in task and event management tools. In this article, we'll delve into Motion's robust color customization features, allowing users to customize calendar, event, and task colors to suit their preferences and optimize visual organization.

Changing Calendar Color

Motion provides a user-friendly interface for changing the color of calendars. To modify the color of a calendar, follow these steps:
  1. 1.
    Navigate to the "Calendar" tab within Motion.
  2. 2.
    Locate the desired calendar and hover over it.
  3. 3.
    Click on the three-dot icon that appears.
  4. 4.
    Utilize the color palette provided to select a new color for the calendar.
By following these steps, users can easily modify the color of calendars, facilitating better categorization and differentiation of schedules.

Changing Event Color

Customizing event colors in Motion is equally straightforward. To change the color of an event, proceed as follows:
  1. 1.
    Locate the specific event you wish to modify within Motion.
  2. 2.
    Click on the event to access its details.
  3. 3.
    Look for the color palette icon within the event details section.
  4. 4.
    Click on the color palette icon to open the color options.
  5. 5.
    Select a new color from the palette to update the event's visual representation.
Microsoft and iCloud calendars don't support changing the color of individual events.
By adjusting event colors, users can visually categorize and differentiate various types of events, improving clarity and readability within their schedules.

Changing Task Color

While calendar and event color customization is readily available, task color customization in Motion is planned for release soon. This feature will empower users to change task colors based on workspace, project, and potentially more criteria. By assigning distinct colors to tasks, users can enhance visual organization and quickly identify different task categories within their workflow.
