Themes are pre-defined styles which control how your message content appears on computer screens and mobile devices. It enables you to set the default font, logo and colors for content and pop-up notifications. By default, an Organization Theme is provided as part of the standard package. You can customize the Organization Theme to represent your branding or you can create multiple themes to have different branding styles for different departments.
There are 3 basic types of layouts for your messages, with the appearance controlled by the Theme:
The popup notification appears in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen notifying the user that a new message has arrived. It displays the message name and the options to read the message now or later.
The message window displays the contents of Alerts, Surveys and Quizzes. It typically appears in the center of the screen but can also be set to show full screen.
The Ticker appears at the bottom of the screen (above the taskbar) and scrolls across the window. Headlines can be simple text or hyperlinks which open a URL in a browser window.
