Default Theme for Auto News Digest

New Contributor

Hello, we are looking to add a Default Theme, primarily for the purpose of branding the automatic news digest emails.


As it stands there is no default (or any) theme set.  So my question is, if we now set a Default Theme, will it change any current SharePoint sites already used in the organisation?


Many thanks.

@AaronB5 If you change the theme in M365 admin center, it will only change the top most bar on SharePoint sites:


Auto news digest also refers to this theme in M365 admin center. Changing this theme will not change the themes applied for individual SharePoint sites (from site settings).
