Themes are a great way of customizing your Plecto dashboards, and you can reuse them across all dashboards with no limitations. Each theme includes different elements, such as a background color or image, text color, widget color, and more.

It is easy to change a dashboard theme. You can change themes right on the dashboard or from the dashboard page in Plecto.

  • To change a theme directly from the dashboard, click on the "Settings" button in the top menu and select a theme from the drop-down list under "Theme." To finish, click "Save."
  • To change a theme from the dashboard page, go to VisualizationDashboards, then click on the "Edit" icon next to the dashboard title. From there, select a different theme from the drop-down list under "Theme." To finish, click "Save."

Note: If you have created any custom themes, their names will also appear in the drop-down list.

Be aware: You need to be subscribed to Plecto's Large or Enterprise plan and have admin access in your organization to be able to create custom themes. Visit our Pricing page to learn more.

To create a custom theme, go to VisualizationThemes > + New theme. The custom theme editor allows you to choose any color or background image - explore all the fields and get creative! 🎨

  • Give your theme a name. It will appear in the drop-down list among all the available themes.
  • Select a background color. If you want to apply a particular color, you can copy its HEX code (for example, #C70039) and paste it in the "Background color" field. Alternatively, you can click on the color palette button on the left and drag the cursor around to find a color you like.
  • The background and border color fields also allow adjusting color transparency.
  • If you want to use a background image, you can upload a file from your local device. The maximum file size is 10 MB.
