How to set the color theme for LMS365 training pages

All courses and training plans, created before the LMS365 January 2022 release, has a dedicated subsite in SharePoint. The color theme for the SharePoint site of these courses and training plans is controlled by the SharePoint settings. If you wish to set or change the color theme of these courses and training plans—and therefore, control colors of action buttons, links, and the like—this setting will have to be applied in SharePoint.

This can either be done via the LMS365 Admin Center, or directly in SharePoint. In this article, we will go through how to apply this setting through LMS365 and through SharePoint, and how these two methods differ.

Applying color themes via SharePoint Site Theme Settings in LMS365 (deprecated soon)

IMPORTANT   

From the LMS365 January 2022 release, courses and training plans are created as pages placed at the root of the SharePoint course catalog site. These pages will automatically inherit the color theme of the course catalog's SharePoint site.

 

As SharePoint color themes are applied per subsite, you can apply a predefined SharePoint color theme to all subsite-based courses and training plans within the course catalog that were created before the LMS365 January 2022 release.

From the LMS365 Admin Center, you can change themes and colors of the LMS365 training pages for subsite-based courses and training plans within the current course catalog. Go to the LMS365 Admin Center > Catalog Settings > LMS Configuration > SharePoint Site Theme Settings. Please see this guide for more details.

This maneuver is very simple and enables course catalog admins and above to apply the color theme settings to all current subsite-based courses and training plans of the current course catalog. However, you can't control the color theme of a particular training site using this approach.

 

Applying color themes via SharePoint Settings

IMPORTANT   

From the LMS365 January 2022 release, courses and training plans are created as pages placed at the root of the SharePoint course catalog site. Therefore, color theme changes made via the SharePoint settings at any page of a course catalog (except pages of courses and training plans created before the LMS365 January 2022 release) will be applicable to all pages of courses and training plans created after the LMS365 January 2022 release in this course catalog.

 

For the trainings created as a sub-site, the the color theme changes made via the SharePoint settings of a certain site is applied only to this site.

 

As a SharePoint site owner or user with design permissions on the site, you can change the color theme of a training page directly in SharePoint.

To do this:

1) Open the training home page > Settings (gear icon) at the top right corner > Change the look.

2) A sidepanel will open. Select Themes and choose the site theme you want to apply.

NOTE   

Only applicable to courses and training plans created before the January 2022 release.

When a site is connected to a hub site, it automatically adopts the color theme of this site. Therefore, the color theme will need to be changed on the hub site level.

To get the most out of LMS365, we recommend using SharePoint's default dark and light themes as we fully support their readability. Once you employ customized themes, we don't guarantee the readability. If you still want to customize themes, we recommend you try it first to ensure that the text is readable.
