Changing the Dashboard’s Color Palette

  • Dark

You can easily change the color scheme of the dashboard to suit your professional or brand preferences.

To change the color palette:

  • Click  in the top menu, and select the preferred color palette. The default palette is Vivid.

Three of the palettes are suitable for color blindness: ColorBlind 1, 2, and 3.


For a short video overview of the process, see below:


When you change the color of an individual widget to a new color that is not one of the palette colors, the new color will be applied to the widget regardless of the applied palette. If you select a new color from one of the palette colors, then when changing the dashboard’s palette, the color will change according to the new palette.
