It would be nice if the Organizational Theme setting would also apply to the recently introduced StoryMap builder templates - this would help improve consistency and branding of our organizational apps.

Hello - Thanks for sharing this feature request. We are looking to add this capability to a future release.

Could you please provide a little more information about how you'd expect the organization's shared theme aspects to be available in the story to help us meet your needs?

  • How would you expect the shared theme colors to be applied to the story?
  • Are all the shared theme colors important to carry over to the story map theme or are some of them less important? For example, stories currently use only a light or dark header. Are the shared theme header colors important to your organization or would it be sufficient if the other shared theme colors were applied? 
  • Would you need to use a different logo in certain stories, or would you want the shared theme logo to always be applied in all cases if you are using the organization's shared theme?
  • Any other expectations for this feature?

Hello Owen,

I think our primary need is for our organizational color scheme (primarily header) and organizational logos to persist – this is to facilitate consistency in identity and branding of public facing products.

Thank you for your consideration.
