Come on, everybody's doing it.  Not just the left bar, the whole thing.  A bunch of our users actually use the web app and overwrite the CSS with Stylus to accomplish this.

thanks for your consideration.

Considering I have seen ideas that are "coming soon" pending for over three years, I would (in all honesty) say long term plan for them means around 5-7 years.

For those of you like me who can't wait for "long term plans," here's my workaround.

Step 1: Install Dark Reader extension for Firefox/Chrome
Step 2: Use Ring Central Web App found on their site after logging in
Step 3: Allow your retinas time to heal from looking at the brightness of the thick client at early hours

Hope this helps!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Dark Theme/Background.

A dark theme that will ease the eye stress and also reduce battery consumption to a good extent.

Hello there, the dark mode could be better to prevent eye strain... but for the reason of battery consumption then, it is not. reference to read: https://www.maketecheasier.com/are-dark-themes-better-for-eyes-battery/
