    Thanks for the list.
    Regarding this one: 
    • [Color] Reverted back to the old color names. We are keeping the new color scheme.

    Can we just get a color palette instead of 10 pre-define colors, 3 of which have predefined uses (blue, orange, gray) and one shows up another color in some apps ("no color" displays as a shade of gray)?  You are storing them in the db as hex already so is it a big ask to give us the ability to harness its potential?

    Hi @Mitch Goldman,

    thank you for your feedback regarding colors.

    This is something we are considering on the future, but not easily implemented with our current set up.
    I have added it to our longer term idea backlog for now.

    Thanks again for your input. It is much appreciated.

    Best,

    Andrea​

    Was this pushed out to all SaaS yesterday ? It says 2/10/2020 but I am not clear if that is the release date and/or the install/push date or both?

    Thanks!

    You mention Link Existing replacing Choose Existing. I saw that a couple of days ago, but it seems to have reverted back to Choose Existing. I'm creating some end user documentation, it would be really helpful to know which is going to stick.  :)

    Thanks!

    Hi @Terry Ginzburg,

    the link existing change is now in production.
    We had to revert our initial release, since it caused a defect that we have since addressed.

    Best,
