Dark mode

alex-b

Could we have QBO in "dark mode" please, with a dark background and nice, high contrast text against it.

The grey on white in the text box I'm typing this into isn't great, and seems common throughout the QBO app. It would be really nice and make the app much more useable for long periods, even more so for visually impaired users, who still have accounts to file after all!

Thank you for this idea, we will be closing this for now due to low upvotes.

So.... don't take this personally Jack S, but this is where society's got to is it?

I've got two weeks to round up enough QBO users to vote for this, because you're only going to do it if it's popular?

You're all for being seen to be inclusive, diverse and tolerant, but actually doing something to help some of your users? Words are free, but costly actions?

Also notice how the seen goes to the harder to see  seen when italicised? Not great UI I'm afraid!  

Xero got more votes for Dark Mode, so maybe they need to get my vote too, even if they still haven't implemented it yet?

For those other QBO users out there that would like Dark Mode (but not enough to have found this and upvoted), I'm going to try Dark Reader, as suggested by a Xero user!

Come on QuickBooks, apparently you exist to help all businesses & freelancers succeed, so support your visually impaired users and get Dark Mode sorted!

Maybe that was a bit much, sorry Jack S! My next feature request will be the ability to edit replies in community posts! :)

Hi @alex-b , I appreciate that and to be honest, I will be looking at the criteria and number of votes for an idea to be considered. I feel there are still many good ideas, regardless of the vote count. What you've said is completely true and if there is anyone I can speak with about the possibility of a Dark Mode setting, I will. At least an explanation would be good as to why or why we won't be implementing it. 

 

Thanks again and I'll come back to you if I get any answers.
