Customise Progress Bars & Account Colours

Progress bars featured image

You can now customise the colour of the progress bars in your account alongside your other account colour settings.

Method Grid lets you customise the look of your account with controls over the colours and logos used. In our latest release we have expanded these controls to include setting your progress bar fill colour and separating the colour controls for the navigation bar.

Setting custom colours

Members with architect (super admin) level access can customise the colours used throughout your account within the account settings area:

The custom colours settings area

You can set the colours to use in three main categories:

  1. Main app – These colours set the main brand colours throughout your account e.g. the navigation bar colours, button colours, font colour etc.
  2. Default element display rules – These are the default colours used when you view the display rules in your grid that show when an element is overdue, a task is overdue and when an element is complete. These colours can also be set at the grid level to override these defaults.
  3. Default label colours – These are the ten default label colours for the elements in your grids. These colours can also be set at the grid level to override these defaults.

Setting the custom colour for progress bars

In the main app colour settings area you can now set the colour you want to use as the fill colour in the progress bars throughout your account, for example within your grids:

A project grid showing progress bars

This colour is applied as the fill colour in all progress bars throughout your account.

We have also improved the look of the progress bars throughout the app to make them clearer to read and understand.

Setting the custom colour for the navigation bar

In the main app colour settings area you can now also set the colours you want to use as the gradient fill colour of the main navigation bar throughout your account:

The main navigation bar with custom colours applied

The colours used in this gradient for the main navigation bar were previously shared with other colour settings. They are now separated out to give you more control over your account’s branding. Any customisation already made in your account has been preserved.
