Dark Mode

Please add a toggle for Dark Mode as Alteryx, after all these years of using it, is burning out my retinas. 


The OS and most apps have a Dark Mode theme so flipping back to a bright white canvas is very jarring.  I tried to adjust the canvas colors in a more muted way but never can get it to work satisfactorily and still be as easy to read as the retina burning default.

#TeamVertical and #TeamHorizontal aside, I actually think dark mode users would capture a large amount of users. 
Its generally nicer on the eyes, and when you're working in front of a screen most of the week, its nice to have that as a consideration/option. I'm fully +1 this idea.

@KylieF is this something that can possibly be raised again? This has been one of the most popular idea posts since its creation.

Just a question : we are asking for a black mode and the new version is all light mode 😕 Give us the choice please guys ! We spend so much hours in this cool software.

This would still be an absolute game-changer for Alteryx.

Dark Mode needs to become a priority for Alteryx. It really is the only tool I use on a daily basis that doesn't have the option.

Please dark mode. The latest version is even brighter.

agreed with dark mode. Just downloaded 2022.1 and it's even worse than before. I'm tempted to revert back to a prior version to save my retinas.

@smoosh - Agree.  Somehow the whites were whiter in 2022.1!

Against 2021.1




I'm not sure why anyone would prefer that whiter UI... 


2021.1 was too white already.


Please allow dark mode !
