Several shades of red activities

Hi Forum.

A customer is having several shades of red activities in their calendar.

Look as 'Byggelyst ApS' which is dark red, or any of the others which is light red. How can this be?

Its from a dynamic selection of persons/companies.

Hi Kasper,

Colours are always tricky ones. Light red, Company is on "Stop". Dark red, if I am not mistaking, should be a Company where the "First Contact" is Former Employee (not 100% sure, but it's worth to look into)

Hi Henk. Thank you for your answer.

The dark red can be confirmed :).

But the light red ones can't. I've checked a handfull on the list, and none of the is on STOP.

Do you know of any documentaion for the colors?

PS: The colors aren't the same depending on which user is looking at the selection.

Hi Kaper, we are on 50% :)

According to the help file:

https://community.superoffice.com/Documentation/Help/en/CRM/8.4/UserHelp/index.htm#t=StandardCRM%2Fchap04%2FThe_List_of_Members.htm&rhsearch=red&rhhlterm=red&rhsyns=%20

Colour-coding in the list of members

  •  If a record in the list of members appears in red, this means that the record belongs to a company marked with "stop". If there is a star is next to the contact name, this indicates that this person is no longer with the company.
  •  If a record in the list of members appears in red, this means that the record belongs to a company marked with "stop", or that the contact in question has left the company.
  • If a record in the list of members appears in blue, this means that the company is marked as No Mailings or E-marketing is set to No for a contact person.

That's all I can find.

On 50% of the colors I've seen - but then again, I haven't seen dark red (what I can remember) ;)

This still doesn't explain why almost all of them are right-red for the customer.

Hi!

There is also FAQ about colors:

Why some records in SuperOffice appear in red or blue color?

Unfortunately none of these guides apparently gives the full picture, since they doesn't cover dark red, or explain the light red in this example.

But thank you for your contributions to this thread :).

One trick to figure this out is to use the Developer Mode in Chrome, to see that the CSS class is called. Here is an example, where the red obviously comes from Stop:

I think that maybe dark red is just red but a bold font, so it looks very dark. And maybe light red is just red again, but pixels antialiasing with white background gives a light red.

Ah, so this is a Win issue? I thought it was Web, since the thread is in the Web section.
