Dark Theme For Desktop Application

First off, thanks for providing a desktop app. I have way too many tabs open in my browser as it is, so offloading to a standalone application helps a lot. ๐Ÿ™

One of the glaring ๐Ÿ’€ problems with it however, is the lack of themes. I notice Wrike offers themes for the browser, so we need something similar for the desktop. In specific, a DARK theme. Microsoft's Visual Studio is a good example, or the Windows 10 Twitter app. Just keep it dark and release it quickly to both online and offline versions of Wrike. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Thanks!

When you change the theme for the browser, you should see it change on Desktop (perhaps log out and in again on Desktop after you've made a theme change in the browser).

I'm happy to hear you're liking the Desktop version Gregory! Let me know if this isn't working for you and I can help further ๐Ÿ˜Š

I've still logged your feedback around having new themes added, it would be great to see you join this conversation and upvote the original postย ๐Ÿ‘

It's a great start, Stephen, but most of the working area of the app is still in bright white ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ”ฅ. If the Midnight theme also gave the two working panes, for example, a dark gray background color, that would complete the experience. We're at least progressing in the right direction! ๐Ÿ‘Œ

A true dark theme would be greatly appreciated!!!ย  We spend many hours a day in Wrike, and having this available is very important for many of our users.ย ย 

Thanks!ย

I'll second what Paul said. Having a full theme that is black or dark grey (or both, similar to Twitter) would be amazing!

Hello Wrike Team,

ย  ย  I am working at a sizable company that leverages Wrike for all of ticketing and project management. As a person with sensitivity to migraines and light I would very much like to see you implement a Dark Mode. One of the community members even wrote a github article on how to leverage Chrome to inject into the workspace and make it a dark mode being this is for my livelihood I don't dare to hack it to make it happen.ย 

ย  ย Would you PLEASE create even a theme that inverts the color scheme of something out there just turning black text to white and white backgrounds to black? As a developer I can't imagine this isn't more than a matter of enhancing themes or creating a new theme that makes it easier to see. I can say this would be a significant quality of live improvement for me!!

Hello Wrike team,

Is this something that we can expect in the future? ย It is really becoming a pain point for employees as to where I have stated before, people basically live out of Wrike and are looking at it all day. ย There seems to not be movement on this, and I really do not want this thread to die, or be forgotten about. ย

So it's been 6 months now. Update? I've stopped using the desktop app in order to be able to use Chrome to have dark mode. I much prefer the native app (especially on a Mac).

Hi Alex Lockwood, sorry for the late reply! I've checked with the team - they are currently not planning to develop it. This might change though, so I'll be checking with the team again in the future, and I'll let you know if there are any updates!ย

Today Wrike went from a dark dark blueish color we've all become accustomed to, to a bright windows95 looking teal. I went through every theme, and they are very gaudy, the closest i could find is a dark purple? why is there 3 shades of white but not a GRAY or BLACK? This is pretty silly. This is business software not printshop deluxe. can we get some professional-looking app aesthetics please? this is pretty sad.ย 
Please don't take this as a whiney complaint from an end-user who just wants their way. This is truly a poor development decision on behalf of everyone involved with Wrike and reflects poorly on the company as a whole. This tool is the life blood for all of your customers. Take this request seriously.ย

This would be such a nice feature. I use midnight black, but I really don't like how the "black" (Really just a dark purple) of the Midnight Black theme in Wrike doesn't match the black ofย Chrome and all of my other dark mode applications. Even if we could get a version with gray and black in the theme instead of purple I would be okay with that for now.

Here is an example of the mismatch in colors with the midnight blue theme next to Chrome.

This is honestly just being so out-of-tune. ย Apple has launched dark theme on iOS, PadOS, MacOS about one year ago. ย Pretty much every app has a 'dark mode' now to reflect this. ย Wrike is the only app which does not offer it. ย There are themes which only change the cosmetic appearance but not the main part of the screen. ย Not surprisingly if you scroll up a lot of users complain about migraine etc. ย Very surprise this is not even on the Wrike roadmap - wrong call!

Bump. Common guys it's the year 2020 (nearly 2021). It can't be **that** hard to implement this.

Hi everyone! The team has this request on their radar as they understand the need for the dark theme. They are now working on the improvements for the New Wrike Experience, and once it is rolled out, it might be possible for them to work on the dark mode.ย
