About Dark Mode

Why Dark Mode?

Many people prefer using dark mode in applications because they feel it’s easier on their eyes. While there is no definitive evidence to support that using dark mode is healthier for you, you may personally find that using it produces less eye strain during long sessions in front of a screen.

There is also some debate that using dark mode may help your devices’ batteries last longer, specifically smartphones. Food for thought if you access Issuetrak using a mobile device!


 

Enabling Dark Mode

Anyone can enable Dark Mode.  Here's how to do it:

Steps:

  1. Click on your name in the top right of your screen and select Enable Dark Mode
    1. A pop-up will appear stating that any unsaved changes to the current screen will be lost. 
  2. Press OK on this message and Dark Mode will be enabled. 

Your screen will update with the Dark Mode color theme. Pop-up windows will also have adjusted colors, and some areas of the site (such as the Surveys Module, if you have access to it) will be partially adjusted to Dark Mode.

This is a setting enabled on the individual user's profile and cannot be enabled or disabled by another user, the only way to change the setting is to be logged into the account that is to be changed.

Any page that allows an administrator to change colors, such as Site Colors for Organizations or System Colors for the application as a whole, must be accessed from Light Mode, attempting to access these pages while in Dark Mode will have the message Please disable Dark Mode to continue.

Here are some examples of what the screen will look like after Dark Mode is enabled:
