I created several new Task tags.

They show up when I look at the Task in Form view, but they don't show up when I look at the Task in Kanban view.

You can edit the color of a tag from within the UI, you just click it:



Task tags need a color attribute with a value greater than zero to show up.  The default value is 0 and you can't edit the color field from within the UI.

I logged this as a bug.


You can resolve this by adding the color field to the form view and setting it to a value greater than 0 for all tags you want to have show up.
