Organisation Settings - Ability to set colour of organisation
Ability to set colour of organisation in the naivgational banner
Purpose: To help distinguish between clients, and avoid entering data incorrectly when working with multiple clients.

Yes please - different colour backgrounds and the ability to open more than one file/company at a time would be awesome... I also open in different browsers to be able to do intercompany transfers and invoicing etc.. so being able to open more than one company at a time would be useful and the ability to change the colours to know they are different files when open at the same time would be great - not to mention colour coding with our admin folders.
Megan Pelser commented
This would be great especially for those of us who have multiple companies in Xero and the changing across entities is confusing because you can't have more than 1 entity open at a time either. Something that should be considered as nice as well
Daniel Forster commented
This would be very helpful
Leeanne Neilson commented
yes i run three companies and would love to colour code them to match their admin folders
Nicola Holdaway commented
Yes please this would be VERY useful!

@Louise Symonds and the others looking to have multiple companies open simultaneously, I do this by using multiple browsers - have one open in Chrome, another in Firefox etc - works well for me - but the issue of both companies looking the same can sometimes trip me up! 🥲
Louise Symonds commented
I totally agree with Megan Pelser - different colours for different companies would be good but being able to have to multiple companies open at the same time would be even better!
Megan Pelser commented
This would be great especially if you have multiple companies that you do books for. It would be great for colour and also to have multiple companies open in different windows at a 1 time to toggle between them as we are always having to switch

Agreed with both Faye and Pete. There are some valid ideas on here listed years ago and still do not have a response from Xero.
Fay Watson commented
Agree wholeheartedly with Pete Stanway's comments. Is this ability for users to suggest improvements simply to make it look like Xero is responsive when there is no intention to take the ideas on board, or does it actually achieve something? There is clearly a side of support for many ideas put forward, so the ideas must have merit.
Pete Stanway commented
I have yet to see one of these suggestions being implemented by Xero!
I have raised other topics where there is general agreement.
I would like to see some feedback from Xero.
We all understand costs and timings are involved but some acceptance that an change would be included in a future release would be useful.
I would like to see a Xero status. Under review, accepted, declined, etc etc.

I agree with Julie Merritt below, I regularly log invoices into the wrong company
Julie Merritt commented
We have two subscriptions.
The amount of times myself and my team raise invoices etc. in the wrong company and then have to spend time correcting it!
To have a coloured banner would make such a difference when switching between them regularly.
Tracy Macdonald commented
Very helpful when you have several Companies to manage
Gail Williams commented
Absolutely! It would be so helpful!
Denise Milner commented
This would be fantastic & so helpful. I have four companies I manage & it would make it so quick & easy to identify which company I am working on if they were colour coded.
Trevor Inns commented
User-selected colours/text would be good. Images/icons ...even better.
Also, ability to hide Demo Company
Tracey G commented
This is a great idea!
I am working with 4 files and I have folders and stationary coloured to match each company Im working on - reports going to the monthly meetings are submitted in matching coloured physical files.
What a terrific idea!
Marc Allinson commented
I have subscriptions for two organizations.
When I'm busy, I am switching between them regularly. When busy it is easy to mistakenly do work on the wrong organization and have to spend time correcting it.
I would like, as with the likes of outlook where different accounts can have different themes, to be able to alter the colour scheme of the organizations to better see which one you are logged into. At the moment they are both Xero Blue. It could be a simple option in the organization setup.
