Summary0009155: Cell coloring for due date indicates "overdue" when not overdue yet.

The cell with the alarm clock icon for issues with a due date is colored red on the day of the due date, as well as any days after that. The red coloring seems more consistent with an overdue warning, rather than a "due today" warning. Perhaps red should be used for overdue itmes (starting the following day), and another color, such as yellow, should indicate that it is due today?

Better yet, perhaps making the colors a config variable might be more flexible.

I agree with this. I would even like to be able to disable the colors altogether.

If the 3 colors (Not due yet, due today, overdue) are set as variables, and a 4th variable controls whether to colorize at all, then this should be flexible enough for everyone. Perhaps:

$g_due_date_cell_coloring_enabled = ON

$g_due_date_cell_color_assigned = '#cceedd'
$g_due_date_cell_color_today = '#ffffb0'
$g_due_date_cell_color_overdue = '#ffa0a0'

Alternatively, the three states could be assigned as an array, like the status colors:

$g_due_date_cell_colors = array( 'assigned' => '#cceedd',
'today' => '#ffffb0',
'overdue' => '#ffa0a0')

I dont want to differ between today and overdue. And i want to flash overdue in "due day". This way developer will be noticed that he has last doay to finish issue. It may be changed in future when mail notifications about due dates will be added.
Right now you can turn coloring off by editing css file.

I think if admins don't want to distinguish "due" with "overdue", they could simply set them both to the same colors, no? I would expect that many people, if not most, distinguish between "due today" and "overdue", as do most calendar/task list applications such as Outlook, Sunbird/Lightning, etc.
