You can create themes to customize your dashboards even further than possible using the dashboard widgets. Themes are a great way of tailoring the design of your dashboard to fit your company's profile and create unique dashboards and slideshows.

Note: Themes are only available on the large-plan. Please contact our Sales Team if you are interested in trying this feature or learning more about the large-plan.

Applying a theme to a dashboard

Once you have created a custom theme, you can begin applying it to your dashboards. You have to apply the theme on each dashboard you would like to use it on. 

Follow these steps to apply a theme to a dashboard:

  • Go to the dashboard you would like to apply a theme to
  • Click "Settings" in the top-right corner to access the settings of the dashboard
  • Change the theme of your dashboard under "Theme"
  • Finish with "Save" to update the theme of the dashboard

The dashboard will now use the selected theme.
