Prevent selection of a color if it's already used within the same functional grouping

It's rather painful selecting colors when setting up Call to Action Reasons, Statuses, Snooze Reasons, etc especially the more you values you get.  There is no way for me to tell which colors I already used on another Reason code.  I have to guess, and then if I realize I selected one I've already used, I have to go back and make another guess.

The ask is to prevent me from selecting a color for a new Reason code if I've already assigned that color to another Reason code.  Same within Statuses, Snooze Reasons or anywhere else I can custom select colors within an object/function.  

Incidentally, are there any plans to expand the color palette in sections like Call to Action Reasons?  I've already got 23 reason codes, which is about half the available colors.  And several of those colors are so close in shade that they look very similar when reflected on reports.

@Jeff, Yes we understand the pain in selecting the same color. Thar's great to hear that you are managing 23 reasons codes. This is logically correct ask.

To be more transparent displaying different colors is bit complex,but we will definitely work on this. Thanks for Posting.

Do you wish to block the color which is already selected? or do you wish to display a message while selecting the same color?

I think block it. Or at least make that a configurable option to Block it or just give a warning message.

@jeff, Thar's great to hear that you are managing 23 reasons codes, but is it across all entities or one entity?
