Resetting the Color on the Project Server 2013 Timeline

Project Server 2013 (hereon in known as PS2013) introduces the timeline to the web, which is a great feature – so thank you, Microsoft, for that.

Here’s a screen shot of the timeline displayed in Project Web App – each line on the Timeline represents a project.

Of course, one of the first things that you’re likely to do is to customise the colours, fonts, etc. (well, at least that’s what I did) – and changing the colour is really easy.

To change the colour for a row on the timeline, click on it, and then click on the Theme Colours icon, and select the colour….

The timeline for the project is now displayed in the chosen colour.

The trick is now to set the colour back, but alas the default colour is not available to choose in the palate, so you have to type it in.  The colour is #DDF9D4.

Click on the up the Theme Colours icon, click on More Colours, and enter #DDF9D4 into the new colour box.

  2. HI

    I want to check if we can change the background colour of the cells in project web app.

    When we edit it in MS Project professional to any new colour it gets changed, but when the schedule is checked in it once again takes the default white colour

    Regards
    DS
