so, I fired up my usual groups document library and was greeted with neon green pinned folders and other neon green UI elements (hyperlinks have the same color). I was like "dear god whats going on" and hit F5 for refresh, but nada, still neon green. Unfortuantely the folder list below is still in the default blue color I'm used to.

Turns out, all my other groups got new colors as well, except they are a little easier on the eyes.

It's still limited to the Files part of the Groups, and did not bleed over other parts.

Looks like the recently introduced Yammer Groups Color Scheming from a couple of months ago.

I haven't found a way to the change the colors, and also don't except there will be one in the future.

Hi Ivan,

 

just checked mine but do not see the green neon. Only the new functions button is neon green.

Would try to clean cache to check if there is a difference.

Your groups wouldn't have to be green. As I said, every group I'm a part of, now has a different colour assigned, just like in Yammer.

I have groups in the following colors now: neon green, turquoise, deep blue, light blue, normal blue, pink, dark pink, 

 

Also, I'm on first release full tenant.

I'm now seeing the highlight colour in the Groups files matching the colour used in the Groups Conversations header, but it's really subtle, nothing to be really bothered about. I would like to be able to pick the colour per group.

You need to be the owner of the group

  1. Go to the site in Sharepoint. In Teams, just go to a channel, go to the files, then "view in sharepoint"
  2. Select the gear icon in the upper right of your O365 window and select "Site Information"
  3. Select "View all site settings"
  4. Under "Look and feel" select "Change the look"

 

that should do it.

This allows you to change the look and feel of the site (very slow by the way) but it does not influence the colour of the card associated with the group.

 

There is no way I can find to change the colour of the card associated with a group /site in sharepoint / office 365

I created a new logo for my group, plain color background (the color i wanted the group to be) uploaded it and it changed my support group from hot pink to a more conservative blue.

How did you get this done. My colours on my site seem to be shocking pink at the moment, Logo is now fine. Any ideas?

Did anyone ever figure this out?  I also have a site with the "shocking pink" look, e.g. links and banners.  The current look selected under site settings does not show pink.  Same behavior, but with different colors on a few sites.
