    Hi Joseph,

    Color in WorkFlowy has not been forgotten! We are going to build a color feature this year. In the meantime, we're building some really fantastic feature such as "boards" which can be activated in your Settings menu... as well as a range of date-related features :-)

    I don't know what boards are but they sound amazing!

    Hi @D,

    You can activate boards (currently in beta only via your web browser) by:

    1. Activating "Boards" in your Settings menu (Desktop browser)

    2. Using the syntax "is:::board" (no quotes) in the note of a bullet (Shift+Enter to get to the note)

    3. This will give you a horizontal list of columns :-)

    I love it. Doesn't work when I use tags but you probably already know. 

    Awesome work, WorkFlowy.

    Hi @D,

    I'm not sure what you mean by tags not working... Can you explain what you're referring to?

    OMG Frank - boards are amazing! Took me a while to get them to display and not really sure what I did but anyway... as a GM of a v small arts charity in the UK I have been using Workflowy for a while managing company business, forward strategy and delivering projects including an annual festival.  This year got too overwhelmed by the HUGE lists and finding what I need.  Now with current situation I need to pull forward urgent items but not forget the jobs needed to be done eventually.  Just playing with boards so far but it so much reflects the way i used to use written lists - so not using the GTD particularly.

    Sorry to hijack your post Joseph!

    However - not mentioned on Workflowy blog and no hints how to use apart from a video on You Tube!

    Tags appear to work normally for me

    1. dropdown shows previous tags as normal
    2. search list shows boards and bullets
    3. screen returns to normal when clicking on tag 2nd time

    Hi Harriet,

    Boards is a highly experimental feature (because we're still building, adjusting and polishing)... and it's going to get a LOT more interesting... and once we officially launch it, you'll see in-app notifications that point to a blog post or similar :-)

    Hello! I've noticed that one of my bullets has a blue circle around it. The rest all have grey circles. Why is there one and only one bullet with a different color? The existence of this different one implies that the colors can be changed. But I can't figure out how to change them.  Here is a screen grab of the random blue bullet:

    HI Rezwan,

    The blue halo around the bullet means that either you shared that bullet with someone... or someone shared it with you and you embedded it into your account. Take a look at the 3-dot options menu to the left of any bullet and you'll see details in the "Share" option or "Shared".
