Brand Smartsheet with Your Colors and Logo

Maintain your organization's brand recognition by applying custom colors and uploading your logo to Smartsheet. The color settings and logo branding that you apply will be displayed in the Smartsheet application, as well as in email messages sent out from Smartsheet.

NOTE: Changes to Personal Color Settings and Logo will be applied to any sheet, report, and dashboard that isn't in a workspace. Previously created workspaces and items within them won't be changed. New workspaces created going forward will inherit the new color settings and logo. See Create and Brand Your Workspace for more information on changing workspace color settings and logo.

Who Can Apply Custom Colors and Logo Branding

Custom colors and logo branding is available to licensed users and System Admins on Team, Business, and Enterprise plans. (See the User Types article for more information on licensed users and System Admins.) The way you apply colors and logo differs based on whether you're a licensed user or a System Admin:

  • Licensed user—Apply default colors and logo branding that will appear in new Smartsheet items (sheets, reports, workspaces, and dashboards) that you create going forward. Changing colors and logo will not retroactively apply to previously existing Smartsheet items or ones that you're not the Owner of. 
  • Licensed System Admin—Set the default color settings and logo branding for everyone in the account. See Global Account Settings for information on applying colors and logo for everyone.

Supported Image Formats

Compatible file formats include:

  • PNG—All PNGs are supported.
  • GIF—Animated GIFs can be uploaded, but they will not play in the grid. The initial frame will be used as the preview. The animation will play after you double-click the image in the grid.
  • JPG—JPGs in the RGB color space are supported (this includes your camera phone photos). Images in a CMYK color space targeted for print are not supported at this time.

Applying Colors and Uploading Your Logo

Set custom color settings and upload your logo to brand workspaces (and all items within) that you create going forward as well as any sheets, reports, and dashboards that you own.

To change colors and use a custom logo:

  1. Click Account in the upper-right corner, and then select Personal Colors & Logo.

    The Colors Settings & Logo form appears.
     
  2. Choose color settings for Background, and Task Bar Color.

    Here are the options for picking colors:
     
    • Preset Color Options—Choose one of the preset color options available.You can then manually adjust the colors using the color picker as needed. 
    • Color Picker—Click the color swatch directly underneath an element to display the color picker and select your color.
    • HTML Color Code—Type an HTML color code (also known as a hex code) in the field underneath an element. Check out a Color Picker site for details on color codes.
       
  3. Upload an image file of your custom logo. Keep in mind the supported file types and that your logo may be resized
  4. Click Save to apply your changes.

That's it! Your custom colors settings and logo will appear on any Smartsheet items (sheets, reports, workspaces, and dashboards) that you create going forward.

NOTE: Changes to Personal Color Settings and Logo will be applied to any sheet, report, and dashboard that isn't in a workspace. Previously created workspaces and items within them won't be changed. New workspaces created going forward will inherit the new color settings and logo. See Create and Brand Your Workspace for more information on changing workspace color settings and logo.

Branding a Previously Existing Workspace

Workspaces that you create after you apply your custom colors and logo branding will inherit the new settings; however, any workspaces that you've created before applying your custom colors and logo will need to be changed individually. Details on branding a workspace can be found in Create and Brand Your Workspace.

    Tips for Creating a Quality Logo for Use in Smartsheet

    Here are a few tips to help you achieve the best results when creating a version of your logo for Smartsheet:

    • Create a version of your logo with the dimensions 300px by 52px. Make sure that your logo still looks clear when scaled down 50% (150px by 26px).
       
    • If your logo includes text, consider making the text larger and placing it beside the logo as opposed to above or below.
