Change resource management colors?

Is there a way in Resource Management screen to change any colors? I would like to change the color for specific blackout days and PTO so it's visibly clear that those days are off limits.


Thank you

    Hi Angie, we dont have a way to change colors in resource management at this point, but I will submit this request to our Product team!

    Thank you. This would be very helpful. I thought that maybe updating the Working Days in Account Settings might accomplish this, but it has no reflection whatsoever on the Resource Management calendar.


    It would also be helpful to change the colors based on project as a quick visual identifier.

    I'm not sure if I completely understand but I think I do.  I have a Resource Management background and am new to Smartsheets.  I currently track things like PTO by maintaining a sheet of "unavails" for each quarter and creating a task line for each block of time that a resource is not available to me.  Color coding would be an added bonus for me as it would then enable me to quickly differentiate between billable activity vs. non-billable activities. I'm not trying to take away time off, but if I could have that visibility on a quick view it would create an effeciency for me.

    Hi Dion-- Thanks for that feedback! I've added your vote to modify colors in Resource Management to our enhancement request list.
