I am curious to know what the groups thoughts are about allowing users to
theme a web application. I work for a medical company where it has been
proposed that users be able to change the colors of our flagship application
to whatever they want, mostly their corporate colors, and a logo. Prior to
my arrival, developers made it so that any and everything could be changed,
icon & button colors, text colors, background, headers, you name it. It has
been asked of me to decide what is the best course of action.
My thought is that if every aspect in the application is changed, that
parts of the application become less meaningful, ie, error messages, primary
and secondary actions within forms, work flows, etc. I am for some basic
color changes, and a logo, but thats about it. What does the group think?
How much theming should be allowed?
