To allow users to fully customize AGOL landing page in order to reflect the  organization's branding they need to change  text colors , background colors , also to be able to embed URL links in the home page. the current version doesn't allow this and  limits the text and background color to black,gray and white.

Having limited colors defeats the purpose of org branding.


Not only color...we heavily customized ours using HTML/CSS, had customized icons and had links to external material/our main website, etc (following a lot of the examples and best practices Esri itself produced for homepages!). Not being able to edit the text in any way, including adding hyperlinks, is a huge issue for us. We're now resorting to make storymaps that are just embeds of our digital content, which is an inelegant solution. 


Agree! Also, need more customization ability for the cover image size! The home page editor is way too basic at the current time.

Hi @AhmadSALEH1 - changing the background and text color is now possible at the April 2021 ArcGIS Online update, and hyperlinks were added at the December 2020 update. Here is the blog on the new color capabilities. If you have any feedback on this new feature, we would be interested to hear it.
