Be able to propagate up a risk value
If a sub task had a custom field which indicated it's current risk or similar be able to propagate that up to the top level to show the worst of the risks or some other flag
e.g. if a single subtask of a item is red risk, be able to show that red risk in all of it's parents in the structure. choose the worst value of all sub nodes to show at the parent level.

We currently have a single choice select list that we use for this (Red,Yellow,Green). Using the ordering of the values in the single choice select option definition, picking the lowest numbered of all leaf children found would work fine. it'd also be fine (for us) if you just implemented a selectable custom color block. it'd also be nice to be able to specify that the field was rendered as a block of that color rather than just the word.
Thanks for suggestion! This is definitely something that we can implement without a lot of effort -- the supporting architecture is there. My only question is how you track risk, with some custom field? Do you know what type of custom field is that? We need to understand how to compare risk values.
