Custom priority colours
I've started poking around Moo.do and thinking of my current system I would need more priorities and more distinct colours in order to move seamlessly over to Moo.do. I currently have six colours (Now, Next, Soon, Later, Scheduled, and Waiting) plus no colour.
Agreed, and using tags like #now, #soon, #someday, or dates like @11/19 also means that those items will show up in the "Agenda" view, which is one of Moo.do's killer features as a task management tool.
Also, there's a "star" feature that I didn't know about for a long time, which changes the background color to a yellowish highlight to make it stand out in another way.
For your case: I would recommend using custom tags instead of the built in priority colors; it's really easy! Just create tags #now, #soon, #later, #scheduled, etc. Make a special status-focused board ("Statuses"), with a zoomed-in pane for each of your six status tags. That's the beauty and flexibility of Moo.do; you can use their flexible tags and boards and zoomed-in views to make your own custom system!

I appreciate that I just might be doing it wrong!
So if anyone has a better suggestion please let me know or point me to some good showcases.
