I found myself writing in all caps at the beginning of my todo list items, signaling what I can go ahead and work on, what I’m waiting on, and things that I can’t really start yet. Little Notes like ‘ON HOLD’ or ‘GO’. It was working acceptably well, but it seemed like designating these things with a color on the entire list item might make it clearer. It’s one of those small changes that could potentially make a pretty big change in how I work and my overall efficiency, so I went ahead and added the feature to Vimsio. So far, it’s pretty nice.
I’ve only added a few colors so far (green, yellow, red, and the default white), but I may add more in the future.
To give a list item a background color, just use the mouse to hover over the item, which brings up the options for that list item, and then click on the desired color.
