Assignment colours

I wanted to folow up on this conversation.

All assignments are colour coded according to the operational period. It's possible to change them to random but this only works on the computer that I do it on - if I share with my colleagues out on the ground they just see a mess of red lines on the app. I don't see an option to display randomly in the app and even if there was, they will presumably get different colours so I can't tell them to "search the green area next" over the radio. Most of our searches are quick and we rarely have to search more than one day so we are going to have to ignore the assignment and operational period functionality if we can't figure out how to change this. It seems like it would make sense to allow this within an operational period at least. Or perhaps allows us to assign assignments to our own list of resources (the standard list is too prescriptive for our use) and colour them according to resource.

Thanks for taking the time to review this one again

    Thanks for your detailed feedback on this feature. We are working hard to ensure CalTopo continues to improve and that work is often thanks to users sharing their thoughts and feedback. We often take a variety of user requests and incorporate them into a larger function, so stay tuned as we release new features throughout the year!

    Additionally have you seen the webinar we did on using SARTopo for mission management? We do discuss some best practices for creating assignments in SARTopo about halfway through- if you haven't seen it yet, I would suggest checking that out!
