Capabilities

Who can use this capability

System Admins can set the default color settings and logo branding for everyone in the account. The item Owner and Admins can apply default colors and logo branding that will appear in new Smartsheet items (sheets, reports, workspaces, and dashboards) that you create. A license is required. Not sure about what plan type you have or whether you have a license? See Identify Your Smartsheet Plan and User Type..

Changing colors and logo will not retroactively apply to previously existing Smartsheet items or items for which you are not the Owner. See Global Account Settings for information on applying colors and logo for everyone.
 

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.

Smartsheet with Custom ColorsColor and logo changes also apply to any sheet, report, and dashboard that isn't in a workspace.

Brand the application for your entire organization

You must be a sysadmin to apply branding organization-wide branding.

  1. In the lower-left corner, select Account > Admin Center.
  2. On the Branding & Personalization tile, select:
    • Account Colors
    • Account Logo
    • Branding Lock: Branding lock prevents users from applying personal branding settings. 
  3. Save your changes. You can revert to the default Smartsheet settings at any time. 

Brand the application for yourself

If your sysadmin has applied strict branding guidelines, you can not use custom colors or branding. 

  1. Click Account in the lower-left corner and select Personal Colors & Logo.
  2. Choose color settings for Background and Task Bar Color. Or, select a color theme. 
  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.

Workspace branding

Workspaces inherit org-level branding, not personal branding. Workspaces created after you set custom colors and logo branding inherit the new settings. Existing workspaces need to be changed individually. If your sysadmin allows, you can brand individual workspaces, overwriting org-level branding. 

To brand a specific workspace: 

  1. Right-click on the workspace you want to brand.
  2. Select Workspace Colors & Logo.
  3. Choose color settings for Background and Task Bar Color. Or, select a color theme. 
  4. Upload an image file of your custom logo. Keep in mind the supported file types and that your logo may be resized. 
  5. Click Save to apply your changes.

Supported file types

Compatible file formats include:

  • PNG
  • GIF:  You can upload animated GIFs but they will not play in the grid. The initial frame is  the preview. Animation will play after you double-click the image in the grid.
  • JPG: JPGs in the RGB color space are supported (including your camera phone photos). Images in a CMYK color space targeted for print are not supported.
