How can I delegate a color pallet across 365 organization

Paras Bhatt 0 Reputation points

I have created a custom color scheme for Office apps (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc.) based on our brand colors. Also, I have set our corporate fonts.


Is it possible (and how) to set this color scheme and corporate fonts to be the default for

all existing users in our organization

every future user that logs into our 365.

Currently, we do this manually by remotely connecting to each user's PC and setting it locally. I would like to automatize it if possible so that once created color scheme and font can be set as a default on an organizational level (for all users) so that when they are creating new documents, this will be automatically set as the default. 


The idea is also to make it future-proof so that if something needs to be changed (e.g. one color in the color palette), we can change it for all users at once.

    Hi @Paras Bhatt

    You may create templates then distribute them via GPO, or SharePoint Online Office Template library.

    The reference:

    Create an organization assets library

    Then users can choose the templates to create a new file.

    But if you want to set them as a default templates, you need to replace previous local global templates with them. In my opinion, this increases the risk of use, and I do not suggest you do it.
