I dont know how other people feel about this but when you are managing several fortinets at the same time it can end up very confusing as to which device you are currently looking at, I know you can set the name but that only shows up in the top of the IE browser, If you have a page open to both you can very quickly forget that you are on the wrong one. The other day i was copying settings from one to another when i accidently got them mixed up and rewote the good settings.
A simple fix to this would be to allow the fortigates to have their webpages change colour. It could be a simple drop down box that give a choice of a few colour schemes and these need only be a few teeks to a css file so very little work. But then you could set one to be the standard and another to red for example.
I mentioned this for Fortinet support and they agreed it would be useful but i guess it will need support from others to be put into their development schedual.

While I agree a colour scheme change would be the most obvious way to distinguish between various devices, what I' ve seen done is changing the ' top logo' graphic to something unique for each device.
Of course this isn' t as plainly obvious as a colour change, and it requires time to make up the graphic. Still, it can be done right now.
I didn' t see where to do the graphic change as that is one i would consider for now, thanks :)
On the colour scheme, i did not intend on replacing the default green, this should remain the default but then for those of us that want to we should be able to switch the colors over to a new scheme, even if this is not saved but just used for the current session it would be of benefit.
