How to Color Items

Using the color folder

One of the cool features of eccoext is the ability to change the color of an item through an auto assign rule.

Here's how it works.

First create a new folder called Color.

Set the folder type to Text.

Let's try a simpler version, that will color red when today is true and item is not done:

++:!+-MN:iff(gfv('Done') > 0, "",iff(gfv("Today") > 0,200,"")):[Today] or [Done]

This assumes you have a folder Today and a folder Done.

Now, assign an item to the Today folder. You'll see its color change!
