In this article, we'll be exploring how to select colors for status values in Matrak's construction material tracking software.

Color coding your statuses and button list values is a great way to visually communicate the progress of your project and quickly and easily see the status of your project from your interactive drawings. An added bonus, with customizable color-coded button list values, you can create color-coded wall chart views for progress reports on your ITP checklists.

By the end of this article, you'll have all the information you need to choose the perfect colors for your Matrak project status and button list values. Let's get started!

Step-by-step instructions on how to update your status and button list value colours:

  1. Navigate to the 'Project settings' page from the left side bar menu

  2. Click on the 'Update Status/Button List Colours' tab

  3. Click on the individual status colour box for a status you wish to change - a custom colour pallet will appear and you can update this status colour

  4. Once you’ve updated the colour, clicking out of the colour box will automatically save your changes.

By refreshing the page and returning to dashboard homepage, you will see new update status colours.

Note: The colors and statuses are customisable to users. However it's important to note that these colours are project based — so if there are multiple users on a project, you will all share the same status colours set by the project admin user.
