Bring back color themes

Hi,

We have three users on our plan, basically, three different departments. In the old UI we each are set to a different color theme, so anyone call tell at a glance which department is logged into Insightly on that computer. I personally can log into any of the accounts, as the boss. I routinely tell which one I'm in by the color theme.

We typically have hundreds of projects in play at any moment. I use color on the status to pick out which ones need attention. I understand that you've lost color coding there, too.

Please continue to allow users to use color coding to help us with our day to day activities. Colors are an important way we can convey information at a glance.

 

Thanks.

    Thank you for submitting this request. Definitely noted! As you probably can tell from our latest release, we are adding a lot of new customization options to Insightly. We will consider adding a point of visual differentiation back. It may not be color(s), perhaps a different pattern or hue of the same color. Thanks again for your suggestions.

  • Hey Wendy,

    Thank you for the suggestion and great example. This was a feature that was removed but the more comments posts like this get, the more attention is brought to our Production team.

  • Please, the new scheme is so distracting (and ugly), enough to make me an ex user...

  • Please at least allow us to change the colour of the orange bar along the top.

  • Please bring back the ability to change colors or at least provide a dark theme. I understand your desire to brand your products with the Insightly color but how anybody can think bright orange and white is not going to be a strain on the eyes is beyond me. 

    Thank you.

  • Please bring back the colors :-) The new, orange theme is kind of unpleasant for the eyes..

  • I have recently upgraded from classic to the new user interface.  It was a seamless upgrade and I am very thankful.  The only whine from almost all of the users (and myself) is the lack of themes.  The orange, especially with red buttons, is garish and distracting.  Please reinstate the themes.

  • Why is insightly going in the wrong direction???

    All apps and UI are switching to night mode to provide a bit more rest to our eyes since we are at least 6 hours in front of the screen. But no, Insightly decided to remove that option and replace it with a more-than-ugly color combination, bright orange and white?

    Are you nuts or what? Unbelievable.

  • Any progress on bring back the colors?

    Some staff works better with visual cues, it would be nice to have this feature on a user account level.

    So that the user can highlight what's important to them and in a way they recognize it.

    I am just flicking through some old videos of tutorials since I am reorganizing Insightly for our company.

    Unfortunately, we have had a bad history with how well insightly worked for us. the activity around it, did not pick up in the same way other tools have, we use lots of software some very cryptic and some very userfriendly.

    I have amended our processes and it seems to have cleared some procedures, our staff constantly had to rewrite information, retag, no activity sets, badly setup. 

    Anyway, the point is Iv had to redesign and its something that would help indefinitely!

    Even for training purposes, it helps us describe and staff to see. Our brain works in an amazing way, you can probably catch an apple without directly looking at it. there color tags would work in the same way. our eyes pick up color better amongst white. Its these little cues which help (at least some people)

    SO 2019 NOW Bring back colors !!!

    p.s Not with the color background theme, I don't mind what color that is, has nothing to do with the workflow but in general its nice to personalize your workspace, isn't it nice to feel at home? so let us make it our own :).

    Hope I get a reponce, thanks for all the customisation updates too loveing the dashboards and custom filters - Hate your recommendation Defult options :(( how can I hide this!!!
