Share a theme

Themes are collections of settings on your Insights for ArcGIS page, including colors, text, media, and card types. Themes can be saved, shared, and applied to new pages. Using themes can help you apply a consistent standard to your Insights pages.

Theme items are stored in your ArcGIS Enterprise portal but can only be used in Insights.

Share your theme

Themes can be shared to create an Insights Theme item. Use the following steps to share your theme:

  1. Customize your Insights page using Page Settings Page Settings, Style Style, and Widget Widget. Make sure your cards are also in the correct position.
  2. Click the Page options button Page options.
  3. Click Share As Theme.

    The Share As Theme window appears.

  4. Optionally add a title, a description, and tags. You can update an existing theme shared from the same page by choosing the theme from the Title menu.
  5. Choose how you want to share your theme. You can share the theme with the public, with your organization, or with select groups from your organization. If you don't make a selection, the theme will only be available to your account.
  6. Click Share or Update.

Change the shared status

Shared themes are saved as Insights Theme items. The status of the Theme item can be changed using the Share button Share for the item on the home page.
