Is there a way to revert to the old UI?

I find the new UI very difficult to use, particularly the colors — quite hard to tell some of them apart.

 

On some of my computers, the desktop app is (thankfully!) still using the old UI, as is the web version.

But on the machine I use most, I seem to be stuck with the new one. Is there any way to revert to "classic mode?"

Hi Luke, 

Thanks for sharing your feedback! 

I've passed on your comment to the team working on this project. 

Unfortunately, there's currently no way to revert these changes back as we're gradually rolling out new themes to all users. 

You can check out the themes options available to your account by clicking the Theme button located in the top-right corner of the Trello page. 

If there's anything else you want me to send over the development team's way, just let me know!

Please always have the original theme as an option for future versions! I prefer the old UI way more than the new one!!

Hey there, 

Thanks for sharing your thoughts! 

I'm glad to let you know that the team has temporarily brought back the option to switch to the Original theme while we're still gathering feedback on this feature.

You should be able to switch to the Original theme from the same menu I mentioned above.  

Hope this helps!

Hi there, 

The "original theme" option on the theme button is missing and my only option is either black or light, I'm finding it difficult in particular with the colors too, the original version is much more friendly to the eyes, please kindly bring it back

Update, I just used the Light Theme color and changed all the label colors instead, looks good now, it actually looks better now than the original theme, I'm happy with the light theme :)

my problem are the 'due date' colors - man they are terrible!

Like Hannah likes this

I find the new themes, light or dark, accessibility-unfriendly. The colors of the labels are unbearable for me to the extent that I don't want to use trello anymore because of this! Please restore the option to go back to the original theme.  

Even the app no longer supports the good old theme. I can't take it anymore from trello enforcing these color theme on us! :/

Hey, 

Thank you all for sharing your feedback! 

While I can't promise the original theme will be brought back, I've shared your comments with the development team for consideration. If there's anything else you'd like me to pass on to them, I'm here to help!

No sure why the option to revert back to the Original theme has been removed. New colours are very difficult to work with on the boards. Having used trello for many years I would need to amend many boards to make this usable.

If original theme is no longer available it will probably be easier to export my data to a new a new tool such as Monday.

Sure it would be easier to provide option to still use the original theme rather than losing loyal customer over a UI change. Even Microsoft still provide an option to using Window 10 rather than forcing the use of Windows 11.

Hi David, 

It's sad to hear that this change has had such an effect on your work with Trello 😔

As of now, I'm afraid there aren't any new developments or updates from the team in regard to bringing the original theme back. 

I've passed on your comment for their review though! I understand it must take time to adjust to the new color palette, but is there anything specific about the new themes or colors you'd like me to pass on to the team? I'd be glad to do that!

Hi Alina, 

I'm a high school gr.11 student who has been using Trello for the past year and I loved it, especially for its beautiful pastel color scheme and design that allowed me to joyfully keep track of my tasks. However, all of that changed after the old theme was completely removed. 

The new colors are too strong and not aesthetically pleasing to the eye. For example, my high-priority label used to have a light pastel red color, and now it's a horrible, saturated red that hurts my eyes. Another example is when I check off the due date box, it turns an unsightly dark green that ruins my satisfaction of checking if off as a whole. Moreover, in my personal opinion, I can not stand the boxes' rounded corners, no matter how hard I try to get used to them. 

Could the Trello team please bring back the old theme, even if it's a side option!!? I really want to continue using Trello happily. Thank you.

Hi Hannah, 

Thank you very much for sharing your feedback and concerns!

I've passed on your comments to the development team. As of yet, there are still no plans to bring the original theme back. But we're still gathering feedback! 

I'm sorry it's causing you trouble and that my message isn't something you expected to hear but I'm trying to set proper expectations.

Hi,

I also like the old theme way more, the colours were nicer and with the new design the text boxes bacame bigger, which I find quite annoying when working on smaller screens, while even looking worse! Please bring back the option to use the old theme!
