If you work in an extremely complex workspace, or even have multiple workspaces, and are unable to easily differentiate each one, you have come to the right place. Selecting themes for your Slack will help you keep your multiple workspaces organized and a different theme for each one helps you quickly tell them apart. When navigating from one space to another, your new theme will always appear no matter the device. While your theme on Slack is only visible on your account, you can always share it with other teammates. Slack’s sidebar and messaging theme feature has cracked the code to declutter your communication. 


Once you simply add one theme, the opportunities are endless. With new add-ins in Slack’s newest update, you can customize your sidebar to ease your workflow and increase productivity and efficiency. As demoed in our How to Use the Internet Series: How to Change Your Slack Theme, here is your step by step process to changing your theme.

How to Change Your Slack Theme

To Change Your Theme: 

  1. Open Slack using the Desktop application 
  2. Click on the Name of the Channel 
  3. Click “Preferences” 
  4. Click “Themes” 


  1. You can either pick “Light” or Dark” 
  2. For your sidebar: 
  1. Scroll down and pick a Sidebar theme 


Changing your theme is a nice way to break up the monotony and look at something new. It can also help increase your productivity and allow you to navigate Slack much more quickly. Slack’s “Eggplant” theme gets boring to look at, especially if you use the tool often, so head over to Preferences and give yourself a sight for sore eyes.
