As the topic title indicates.... it would be very nice to have for media environments and events. also we test a lot of media hardware here and often I leave a dashboard page open to look at device status and we often have the lights off or dim for movies and blaring white is a little distracting.
Amy ETA on this? I tried using Stylus browser extension and making a new style for it but no luck.
+1 from me on this, dark mode for those that prefer darker backgrounds!
Sorry, everything Meraki must be green and eyeball roasting white, so it is, so it has been and so it will be. The ancient codes dictate that it must be this way, burn the heretic.
Adding to my wishlist button now
I used to work very closely to a compliance team who insisted their screens were dimmed to the lowest and everyone always wondered what they were looking at.
So funny watching them scramble their windows closed when I remoted on silently from the windows session server to assist them with an IT ticket. Lesson...If you are trying to pretend like you are working, at least have a document open you can hot-key to 🙂
I know this is kind of an old thread now but I would still like to see this.
Lets keep this old thread awake
WE WANT DARK MODE
WE WANT DARK MODE
Yes please! Would be nice to have the community in dark mode as well.
I thought we (the community) usually were in the dark... 🤔
IT workers look at screens a lot. White backgrounds put off a lot of unnecessary light.
I take it the color theme came from some committee that does not use the product. Maybe a marketing decision to show distinction.....from products that cater to the operator experience.
Whatever the case, at this point they are putting effort into avoiding this. It is a very easy win and they are the only product without it.
I use a Google Chrome plugin called Night Eye which works quite well with Dashboard.
@ConnorL That's actually pretty nice. Looks great for the beta firewall network object menus.
I now use dark reader and it works good as well
But did those that aren't allowed to use those night mode would still be awesome.
Dark mode please.
I'll give the above suggested plugins a try but native dark mode would indeed be preferable. I do find I have trouble differentiating between some of the colors on the dashboard, and the "Alternative color" mode is a good fix for that. But dark mode native would indeed be an added bonus for those of us who are light sensitive.
4 years later and it is still not a thing? The recent update seems to have doubled down on the supernova white color.
Yup. Just switched to the new view too. Its clean, I'll give them that. But still has a lot of the issues I always found frustrating, like the side-bar menu always popping out and getting in the way when my mouse just slightly brushes the edge. I did try the suggested Chrome plug-in and it does work nicely - although ads a little bit of lag when rendering pages as it re-draws and it's not always 100% accurate.
Yeah, I was excited when I saw the dashboard update in the banner. I thought maybe finally we'll get a dark theme! We lost what little dark we had. Such a disappointment :(.
There is absolutely a Dark Theme under the Branding Tab on the MSP accounts.
It's not that great for the old Dashboard either, but it's a thing. However...
It no longer works with the Fisher Price dashboard reboot, which BTW removes a LOT of functionality.
"Fisher Price dashboard reboot." 😂
I just clicked on "Try It Now," and boy, do I regret that. I don't see an option to go back to the old (much, much better) version, either.
That's only avaliable to select MSPs
I think I said that but still, I would like a Dark Mode for everyone that works.
We hear you. Dark Mode would be amazing. Keep watching for more announcements as we are adding many more features to the next generation of the dashboard. We think you'll be very excited...
2018. It has gotten WORSE since this point... The branding available to MSPs allowed you to run a pathetic "Dark Mode" which merely greyed the menu bars and header. Fortunately this progress has now been reversed to be NEON GREEN AND BLINDING WHITE which also ruins all the branding that was the point in the first place.
Its like they actively hate us.
