Fully customizable color palette

Fully customizable color palette

In order to be more inclusive, it would be nice if all elements of the user AND model builder interfaces were customizable to accomodate color blindness.

I would add that the lack of color and style variations for elements like fonts, sizing, buttons etc. means the dashboard designer has a very few options to convey level importance of data, separate things, & draw the user's eye to critical areas, an so on.  To me, it's akin to hiring a carpenter to remodel your kitchen but only giving them a handsaw and a hammer.  Can it be done?  Sure, but it could be much better with more tools in the toolbox.

Thanks for your idea! We will look to do this in the future in the New UX. Timeline is not confirmed.

As an alternative, you can use a Chrome extension I published with a few features that updates the current Anaplan UI :

It includes a customizable color palette of the main UI components (editable cells, summaries, column headers, etc. - see screenshot below) that can definitively help with accessibility. Of course, being a browser extension, it requires to be installed and setup by user.
