User-Created Dashboard Color Schemes

Our team would find it immensely useful to build a dashboard theme (choosing font face, font size, colors) from scratch. We strive for cohesive branding on things we build and being able to change the entire look and feel of a dashboard with just a few clicks would save us a lot of time.

    Provide ability to import custom colors into your dashboard that align with corporate branding.

    Possibly via a CSV file or text string such as #FA4C30,#000000,#B5BFC9,#FD90FF,#FF005C,#FF8937,#DD0002,#5A003A,#003BD3,#00BC00

    Hi @earl_bennett

    You can add custom colours to a Dashboard already!

    Once you've added a colour to a widget, it will be available to select in all the other widgets on that Dashboard. Here's a webinar on the feature: Upgrade Your Dashboards with a New Look, Custom Colors, & More

    If I've misunderstood your request, could you explain a little further?

    Thanks!

    Genevieve

    My description of the request wasn't very good.

    It would be really convenient if you could import your custom color pallet globally so it's available on all dashboards, highlights, etc.

    Just to give you more insight.

    We have 10 custom colors in or corporate brand. I'm currently re-branding our intake dashboard which has 9 metric widgets across the top that open other dashboards with details regarding the represented data. So I'll have to manually enter our color codes 100 times, and this is only for our intake reporting, I also have our portfolio reporting and X number of other dashboards and reports to update.

    Very painful.

    We are an enterprise level customer and having an enterprise level color pallet would beneficial.

    I upvote this idea. It is an agonizing process to add corporate brand colors to each dashboard when a new dashboard is created. I hope Smartsheet has taken this issue into consideration for version updates.
