Assignment colors

When creating a line and/or an area assignment is there anyway to change the colors? Currently the area and line assignment box has no option to toggle colors. It's automatically a default of red when the polygon or line is generated. I'm aware you can toggle colors for non-assignment polygons and lines. But I would like to label team colors to corresponding assignments. I have attached pictures for referencing.

Thank you,

    One additional comment. I'm more concerned about color coding on the website only. Could not care less about color that prints on the individual assignment maps.

    Hi Caelan,

    There isn't the ability to control specific colors by team. As in, dog team one is always red, ground team one is always blue. You can control colors in a variety of ways, based on that menu you've screen shot, including random if you just want everything to show up in a different color for clarity.

    I'll add your idea to our suggested features list that the development team looks at. Please let me know if you have any further questions and thank you for using SARTopo, Rom

    Thanks for the update. Hopefully it won't be much trouble to add that as a
    feature to the assignment colors. I would hope you could just mimic the
    other text box from the normal lines and polygon drop down menu option.

    The assignment colors intentionally follow the colors of the operational period they are contained within. We don't have a plan to change that at this point in time.
