Colored Cards, based on selected category field value or app reference

Feature idea for card layout: make the card assume the color depending of the first category (e.g. next = yellow, working on = red etc.) or an app reference (deliverables of product A = yellow, deliverables of product B = red etc.). 

Inspired by Like coding = red, design = green, documentation = yellow etc. Then you can show different categories in columns (like next / today / in progress / testing / done / dismissed) and in rows (like priority levels). One more dimension adding design and context without cluttering the lean card view with more text.

I would most love to use it for app references, so that in a card view with status columns (later, next, in progress etc.) and priority rows you see which cards belong to one project or deliverable or product and which to another one.

Hi everyone! 

This is now possible with today's new card layout updates! Cards will now show the color of the category used to sort your columns. Hopefully this visual refresh will help make the card layout even better for you! Please let us know if you have any feedback.

Yeah, this would be just great. I love the card view, but it does have its limitations settings-wise. Any thoughts on this from the Podio crew? :)

Plus one, would be very nice.

I found all Trello functionality which I needed to migrate to Podio, only the colored cards are missing...
