Hello @tejaswini 

 

If by dashboard colour you mean the background color of the page - no, this isn't possible at the moment. In the New UX there are more options regarding colours formatting but this is not one of them. 

 

Please let me know if you meant something different!

Re: Dashboards

Hi @Noemi.andres @usman.zia 

 

If  I opened two or three dashboards at once , how can the customer distinguish which dashboard I am driving through 

So do we have any color formatting for dashboard names (not dashboard background)

I am also attaching the Screenshot for better understanding.

 

Thanks

Hi @tejaswini 

 

The tabs and names as shown in your screenshot unfortunately can not be formatted. 

The best you could do is to use symbols or label them using capitals.

Hi @tejaswini 

 

Alternatively, you could use an image for the title of the dashboards, which then allows you to use different colours for the background colour (within the image) of the titles in each dashboard. See here how to add images to dashboards: https://help.anaplan.com/anapedia/Content/Dashboards_and_Visualization/Build%20Dashboards/Add_Images...

 

Anyway, if in doubt the user just needs to read the name of the tab they've got opened at the top.

 

Hope this helps!

Re: Dashboards

This feels like a good solution! I can't recall where, but I do remember a post whereby a model builder created instructions in powerpoint and saved it down as an image so that it looked nicer, hosted it online and then used the image functionality to present it on a dashboard.

Might be an option to create a 'banner' like image in powerpoint and put it on top of the page instead of having a 'Heading 1' style text box?

Re: Dashboards

Hi @tejaswini 

 

As @Noemi.andres mentions it is not possible to change the colour of the backgrounds in Anaplan models and Dashboards and the New UX. 

 

The only background colour changes you can make are limited as follows:

I haven't seen any ideas posted for changing the colours of Anaplan dashboard backgrounds or change themes in the new UX for dashboards or models.

So I have suggested this on your behalf:
