Managing themes

At the organization level, all themes listed on the Themes page contain information about whether each theme is currently shared to other org units, and how many navbars and org units are currently using the theme.

At the course offering level, all themes listed on the Themes page contain information about whether a theme is shared from another org unit, and the name of the org unit sharing the theme. If you have permission to manage shared themes, the name of the org unit sharing the theme becomes a link to the Themes tool where the original theme was created.
