Timeline view is such a nice and cool view for Smartsheet time values! I've currently been tinkering with using Timeline view to show some project timelines; however I'm running into an unusual challenge that could be a good enhancement. Currently, all color values in Timeline View are auto-assigned, and individual task bar colors can be set using the Gantt view interface (following https://help.smartsheet.com/articles/516441-changing-the-color-of-gantt-calendar-bars ). Rather, we could streamline the whole process, and allow custom color assignments in Timeline View using a color picker for the group values, which would then set a unformal color to all line items within the group - making it more customizable. In addition, the removal of red-hued colors from group color values would as well be ideal, as it has the potential to cast an unnecessarily negative sentiment unintentionally.

To use a visual example, you can see that groups "C" and "E" has a red-colored value automatically assigned. However, I'd like the ability to change the color of the group, which would then set the task bars to the corresponding color as well.
