Give users the ability to set a theme (either an out-of-the-box or custom theme) as their default for all reports created in Power BI Desktop.

*** Original idea text below:

A dedicated place to set defaults for all Power Bi visuals. If I always want my titles to be 15pt font, and my general font to be 12 pt, I currently have to set on each visual.

RE: Set default theme

Would be nice if the default could be set in the Admin Portal so the default is picked up based on your login. That way as a consultant you can easily switch between clients and have the styling upon login from PBI Desktop.

RE: Set default theme

We need to be able to add custom fonts AND allow them to be exported in PDF/PPTX from the Service.

RE: Set default theme

It would be great to have the possibility to apply its own theme from PBI service while creating a report from there

RE: Set default theme

Agree! Need the ability to set the default theme across the organization, both for PBI service and desktop.

RE: Set default theme

Now that themes are out of preview and the Product Team has included themes in the Desktop tool the next thing to add to this is to have a section for organization approved themes. Since many companies have branding guidelines this would be an easy way for admins to load these themes and allow end users to pick from them to create consistency.

RE: Set default theme

I want my custom Report Theme to be applied to all reports created by all users in the Power BI Service. So that our Reports/Dashboards have a look and feel that is consistent and that matches our company branding.

I even found that when I Publish from Desktop to Service with a custom Report Theme ... then create a new Report in the Service based on the Dataset I Published ... it does not apply the Report Theme from the .PBIX file that I had Published.

RE: Set default theme

As an administrator of the system, allow setting standard corporate themes to all users, including for Desktop version.
