Task Color in Timeline

You can choose to color your tasks timespan bar by Date, Priority, Tag, or leave it as None.

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.
