In the old control panel, we got clear colour indications in the status column of the Bookings view as to whether a booking had been cancelled.

Tragically, this has now disappeared.

I would much prefer if the status column (only?) of deleted bookings was coloured Red, new bookings were coloured Purple and on request bookings were coloured Yellow (as per the previous colour coding)!

OK, I see you have now implemented clear colour indications in the status column of the Bookings view as to status.

Unfortunately this has now changed from the colour conventions of the Old Control Panel from
Green to Red for confirmed
Red to greyed out for cancelled
Yellow to deep violet for request
Purple remains as the colour for a new booking.

Where can we find the setting where the account holder can change these from the default colours?

(We would prefer to change this to:
Yellow for on request)

On a similar tack, the recently changed NCP calendar colours are NOT our favourite! The new deep violet colour (instead of Yellow) is just too similar to the Purple colour for a new booking...

less colours, mot more please!

I really don't want to see a violent Technicolor mess, it ends up looking like a 12 year doing their HTML homework. For those extremely good reasons too many colours are universally recognised as bad design.

I'm not asking for "more" colours - just either a return to the old (distinctive) colour coding or the ability to set a personal choice (I presume you would choose no colours at all).

The highlight colours in the new control panel are adjustable, everyone can define their own colour scheme.

The colour shown for the booking status and rate can be changed on the ACCOUNT -> PREFERENCES page.
The room colour within the control panel can be changed on the PROPERTY -> ROOMS -> DESCRIPTION page.

Great! Thanks for implementing that!

I see that the colours one sets at SETTINGS -> ACCOUNT -> PREFERENCES also carry through to the calendar view, so that makes things easier to spot. Thank you again!
