How to customise your branding

  1. Click the Account tab.
  2. Click Branding. If you don’t see this option, you must be an authorised Administrator to access it.
  3. To upload a logo (optional), click Browse (or Choose file, depending on your web browser) next to the Logo field. Choose an existing image from your computer. Your image must be a JPEG, PNG or GIF – for most logos we recommend PNG. If the image has any transparency it will be lost. The image will be resized for you automatically.
  4. To upload a background for the login screen (optional), click Browse (or Choose file, depending on your web browser) next to the Background field. Choose an existing image from your computer. Your image must be a JPEG, PNG or GIF – for most backgrounds we recommend JPEG. The image will not be resized.
  5. You can choose if you want the background to be centred or aligned to the top left of the screen.
  6. Your background image may not cover the full background of every possible screen size – particularly for users with extremely high resolutions. To accommodate for the area around your image, you may specify a Background colour. The colour should be specified as an HTML hexadecimal colour, e.g. FF0000 is bright red.
  7. To upload a Favicon (optional), click Browse (or Choose file, depending on your web browser) next to the Favicon field. Choose an existing Favicon from your computer. Your image must be an ICO, PNG or GIF file. For maximum browser compatibility we suggest you prepare an ICO file with an online conversion tool, like this Favicon Generator.
  8. Click OK to save your changes. They take effect immediately; you will need to logout to see your new login screen.
