New Colours - Change back to old brighter colours or add theme option
Just noticed the colour changes on Rep and wondered if you could pass it back as feedback that I prefer to see the star rating colours match those of the review platforms (gold stars not green). Also I'm finding the new dark green colours very dark and dull, and I much preferred the brighter more colourful version that it was before. Could we maybe have the option to have either the new theme colours or the old theme colours? Thanks
We took feedback from our internal and external stakeholders and made some updates to the direction of the color palette. I would love to hear your feedback on this! Thank you in advance!

In the current live version the distinction between scores is “fade” rather than colour change with very little definition at all in the mid-range. The only real distinction is between Poor and Excellent. The revised sample provides much more clarity between the ranges of Poor-Average-Good which is crucial in both the Reputation Score horizontal thermometer and the heat map charts. I appreciate the issue with colour blindness and the fact that there are many palettes available but the reporting scales need to be clearly defined otherwise the visualisation lose their impact.

I totally understand making changes for accessibility, but because that can be so individualized maybe giving the customer a few choices may be better. It's probably not easy to program, but could you offer 2-3 palettes and allow us to select based on our needs?
As it stands, it just so happens my locations are mainly in the middle color- gray- making the whole map gray.

Hi Courtney, the revised image looks much better than the current live version. The issue for me was the wider variety of colour had gone and everything is just green. I appreciate yellow may be difficult to use because of the colour blindness-friendly palate you've chosen to use, so the gold works well as a replacement. I still feel there's a little too much green, maybe could we add in some blue shades to make it feel less green-heavy and more colourful overall like the previous version?
Hi Guys, yes, I believe the old layout was more transparent, now we have grey on grey everywhere.

The recent change to the platform colour scheme is a massive step backwards from a usage point of view. This is without doubt a case of design over function. The new colour scheme is bland and does not contain enough definition to easily decipher the visualisations in the reports. Please revert to the previous colour scheme for the thermometers and charts.
