In Microsoft Dataverse it is possible to specify a theme to use for the organization/environment.
This is nice when a company brand can be implemented with color scheme and logo etc.

Another extremely common use of the themes is to be able to quickly distinguish between Prod/Test/Dev/etc environments in the same tenant, helping you not to make customizations in production, and other unwanted mistakes.

Since the move from the classic Solution Explorer to the Maker Experience, these themes are not reflected in any way.
Please bring themes back to the customizers! ūüėä

This is super important, and would prevent inadvertent changes in Production.

This will be even more important as non-devs and non-experts start going into the Maker Portal as we start getting more traction for the Power Platform as a generic no-/low-code platform. Making sure that the "no-cliffs" picture stays true, it is important that the people governing the systems have the tools to actually do so, and being able to quickly tell that "you are not in Kansas anymore" - with angry red colors for production, is a very good way of doing that, as no one can avoid seeing it. So, a rather simple fix with a ton of use. Please prioritize this!

That is a really important feature required for someone like me who spends a lot of time in the maker portal everyday.

Couldn't agree more !!

To date, I've spent most of my time in the classic Administrative interface. But I'm starting to use the Maker Portal more and more. I've already made several changes to the wrong environment because I failed to look at the environment name (or the name was too long, causing the distinguishing suffix to be truncated from display).

@Jonas Rapp - thank you for starting this conversation.

Microsoft - please make this a priority!
