There use to be options to change the softphone's appearance with several skins available for download. Where did they go? Seems like they disappeared the last time I updated the software; the interface switched back to a default appearance.

Hi Stephen,

Looks like we had this in the past but it was removed from the product. :(

However, other users have asked for this back too. I've added your request to theirs and will keep you posted via this thread.

Community - Please +1 this post to get this feature back!

Thanks for being patient.

Thanks for your reply.

IMO, design is important to user experience. Would be great to see a range of great looking interfaces to choose from.

Cheers.

I agree with Stephen, the design is important to the user experience as long as it's a design that is better than what the default is. The current default is clunky looking but does the job (even though the color is less than desirable). I hope the developers take a long, hard look at this and decide to make some options available.

Please..it's been 2 years..Can we get a DARK theme here? 
A 14 year old kid should be able to hack one up for you in a few days.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled New softphone for Yosemite - Is there a DARK Appearance option?.

Yeah..so having a bigger WHITE BLOB window taking up more of my screen space is really annoying with the HUGE old person text makes it worse. Is there a slick...smaller DARK theme with smaller text that sits nice on the desktop?

Would like have options for messaging Layout.  Color change, layout change... we use this all day, everyday, and it is difficult to see who sent what.

My SoftPhone should be customizable.  It often blends in with other programs that are running on the same monitor.  It would be great if I could change the color of the SoftPhone Window.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Skins for Desktop App.

I would like to see a skin for the Desktop App that would look nice and show the current date and time. When the company switched to Ring Central we lost the other company that had a good looking skin with the date and time. Used it for years and am now lost without it. I work for a software development company in the US with about 500+ employees and have heard several ask the same question within the company. By having it on the phone app a person doesn't have to stop and go to another app to see the time when on a call. This way I can make sure I'm not late for something else.

I sure hope I don't have to wait 5 years for nothing like these other posts have. These are all 2 years old or older and still no action???? Not very responsive if you ask me.

Hi EFR,  Sorry for any confusion. This is a very old request that should have been archived along time ago.  Since this request was made the product has undergone at least three skin/appearance changes.   I'm going to archive this thread, but if this is something you'd really like to see please submit a new feature request and be sure to use the template provided in the instructions.  It's important for our product team to have a some good use case scenarios so that they know how such feature requests will benefit your business.  How do I submit a request for a new Idea or Feature?
