Geckoboard Pro customers can now request a paid add-on to unlock advanced dashboard theming for your plan.

  • Brand - this color is used for sparklines, bar and line chart series, etc.
  • Dashboard background
  • Widget background  - usually has the same hue as the dashboard colour but with more or less brightness.
  • Text  - for improved readability we recommend using white for dark dashboards and black for light dashboard themes. If you prefer to pick a color, we'd suggest to pick a dark color for light theme and a light color for dark theme.
  • Positive state
  • Negative state
  • Caution state

You can also download our Sketch file to help you and your design team experiment with coloring your dashboard. This will also help us when preparing your dashboard theme.
