Planner Card Background Label Color
Right now the labels are a small little color dot on the side of a card, Trello has something similar.
I would like to see labels that adjust the entire background color of the task card, that would make it MUCH easier to visualize the labels/categories at a glance (much like Outlook calendar could do).
I think that would definitely be a leg up on Trello.

Adding a single coloured dot to the top of my card makes my planner too bulky and more difficult to read. I want more concise information in a simpler format where the colour is the entire tile.
Please implement this feature. We would like to be able to change the background color of individual task cards.
I totally agree. color really helps by enhancing the visualization of the info
This would be great for accessibility
This is something that would help a colleague who is color blind. Colored tags are good, but not significant enough -- coloring the whole task would be best. thx!

If I checked multiple labels what color would you use for the background? Making it multi colored would be ******* my eyes. Maybe make the selected labels span the entire side of the card to make it more visible.

Spoke to our TAM about the very same feature today. Would provide a great virtual alternative to the infamous post it note planning walls we have around work.
also add the ability to customize the colors ROYGBV and maybe put 1or 2 numbers or letters in them.
It would be good to have different themes for Planner like dark, light, and high-contrast.
I agree. For larger corporations we need this to help break up the wall of white
