How can we improve Alma?

More possibilities for the Alma Color Theme

In the new UI, libraries can manage branding in Alma by selecting one of 6 basic colors (blue, purple, red, green, brown, orange). This configuration can only be made by a General administrator and is valid for all Alma users. We would like:
- a larger variety of colors (proposing the 216 web-safe colors would be fine);
- the possibility for any user to define their own Color Theme: color experience may be very different from one individual to another and giving everyone the possibility the use a convenient color would be appreciated.

        I agree with all previous comments. Alma should be accessible for all users.
        We would specifically like to see the options for an individual to choose their own colours, and for this to also include the option to alter the font colour.
        In particular some users have difficulty seeing the blue text against grey background (e.g. when selecting Institution/Community tab after a search). This colour doesn't change when the overall colour is altered.

        It's important for Alma to be accessible to all staff and having a range of colours to choose from is a move in the direction.

        I would appreciate being able to select font and colour as an individual preference.

        Perhaps there could also be a bit more outline definition when in the various boxes for information or data input - its all a bit samey - this necessitates reading everything to be sure

        A larger range of colours would be very helpful. Some of the text is very difficult to see at present.

        Re. accessibility - the font colour is sometimes a problem also (e.g. the faint grey text for 'No records found'). If colour themes could include font colours also that would be welcomed!

        color is a great idea

        Good idea François! While we like the "extended" color options with Nov. 2017 release, we'd really like to see this taken further to allow for the 216 web-safe colors.

        Update: with the November 2017 release, we can now select one of 11 basic colors! Well, everything seems to be going in the right direction...

        Yes! This strengthens the accessibility issue that Amy raised. Thank you.

        I would propose the adaptability of font size.
        Sincerely yours

        This might also be an accessibility issue for some folks.
