Dark theme/Night mode


As an Anaplan user/model builder, I find the white can be a little too much some times and not too easy on the eyes.


It would be great is there was a night mode or dark theme that swapped the colour palette for something not as bright.


This may also help with accessibility

    For me, even if not a full-on Night Mode, at least a little more control over the design of dashboards would be awesome (color pallete, button sizes, button display text, positioning of things, font types & attributes, backgrounds).

  • Great suggestion @Billy.Ogilvie!

    The white themes thats Anaplan uses are really straining on the eyes and can easily confuse you! 

    Some more greys/richer tones would definitely make it less straining! 

    Also I would suggest adding more table formating items than the 4 fixed available so you can change the colours of headers etc. as @DavidE suggests!

    There is a dark theme available for the landing page where you choose which model to enter.  This is available by clicking your initials in the top right and choosing theme 'black'. 



  • @Fwolf this is great for the workspace but it doesn't follow through into the actual model so it would be great to see @Billy.Ogilvie idea there. 

  • There are plenty of browser plugins (for example https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/dark-reader/eimadpbcbfnmbkopoojfekhnkhdbieeh?hl=en) that allows you to activate a 'night mode' within your browser.

  • @damianAP this is gold
