How to Set Custom Branding

You can configure branding options that conform to your company’s—or your clients'—branding strategy. For example, you can configure the system to take on a custom

  • Logo,

  • Icon,

  • Splash screen,

  • Company name,

  • Company URL,

  • Program name,

  • Folder name, and

  • Terms of service.

These branding settings will affect the look of the web portal, mobile apps, and the desktop client. Branding even influences the layout of informational resources like the Daily Digest email, which inherits the branded logo. When you configure custom branding for an organization, the settings will be inherited by suborganizations.

Note

All custom branding should be configured before deploying the desktop client to end users. Branding is inherited when desktop clients are installed; changes made to the branding will not be inherited by desktop clients that have already been deployed. If a change in branding occurs after desktop clients have been deployed, these desktop clients will need to be reinstalled. This can be done through a batch script. For more information on batch scripts, please reference the Knowledgebase.
