How to customize the colours of your dashboard

Want to change the colours of your reports so that they represent your brand or give it an overall feel-good look? Try out one of our available preset themes or if you have 10 dashboards or more take advantage of our custom colour theme feature!

There are two ways to customize the look of your dashboards in DashThis:

1- Preset Themes

2- Custom Themes

 

1- Preset Themes

 

You can easily apply any of our 12 preset themes to your dashboard. DashThis designed these themes to give any plan quick and easy access to a different design.

 

Colour Themes

 

Step 1. Click on the colour theme feature on the right-hand corner of your dashboard

Step 2. Click on the preset themes drop-down menu 

Step 3. Select any of the 12 available preset themes which will be automatically applied to your dashboard, no save required!

 

*Important: This preset theme will only apply to the dashboard you edit these settings to. If you need to edit other reports, you will need to repeat the same steps within each dashboard. If you create a custom template or if you clone your dashboard with your preset theme, for now, the DashThis default theme will always be applied. You will need to go into your dashboard and change the theme. 

At any moment, you can remove the colour theme you've applied by reopening the same panel and selecting the DashThis default theme.

2- Custom Themes 

 

Don’t like any of our preset themes? Not a problem! Give our new custom theme feature a try and create as many custom themes as you like! This new feature is available for plans of 10 dashboards or more but if you have less or you're giving our free trial a shot, you can still try out the custom theme feature!
