Task Color in Timeline
You can choose to color your tasks timespan bar by Date, Priority, Tag, or leave it as None.
After switching to the Timeline view, click on the Timeline icon again on the right-hand side to select from the dropdown menu on how you want to visualize your tasks timespan bar.
Note: If you are in the My Tasks or Smart Folder, you can color your task bars by Project.
Tip: Hit 3 on your keyboard to switch to the Timeline view. Hit 3 again to shuffle your timeline with different options.
If a parent task has a different duration than its subtask, the timespan bar of the parent task will be marked as a gray slashed bar that covers the time duration of the subtasks as well.
