Provide option to prevent sync of Office Theme across devices
While it might be nice for some to have the Office Theme synchronized across devices, I would like to opt-out. I have very different screens on my Laptop and Desktop and I use those devices in different scenarios, so I prefer to have my Desktop office installation dark and my Laptop office installation light.
Can we PLEASE get on with this!?

I am not sure why this is in the Delve section. I hope Microsoft sees it.

I agree, syncing is a nice option but there are many times where you don't want it to sync.
1) If your laptop and desktop have significantly different screen resolutions/sizes.
2) to preserve battery on your laptop or not make it so bright when working at night in bedrooms or on planes.
3) When you often have a remote desktop session open, it is easier to tell which desktop is which if they have different themes. I do this today by not syncing Windows theme, and would like that option with Office 365.
Hello I've got the same issue. Ican't disable the SYNC of themes between my 2 computers. On the first one monitor allow my eyes to use only dark theme, second device in the office allow me to use white theme, which is better when working only during the day. But it sync it everywhere! Any idea how to disable it?
I use dark mode on my mobile laptop, to maximize battery life, but I like colorful mode on my desktop computer, because Outlook and OneNote 2016 are sub-optimal when in dark mode. Would really like to control this by machine. There is already a checkbox to allow your User Name and Initials not to sync. It should be expanded to allow us not to sync Office Background and Office Theme.

Agree, Would like to disable Syncing. Using business account, i am the only person who likes Dark Mode.
I set it, eveyone complains its changed to dark. they change it to light mode. Then it changes on my Office365 apps too!
Please allow us to disable syncing to have our own settings
