Theming Jive for Outlook

You can use custom colors, images and icons to provide a branded client experience of Jive for Outlook.

The Outlook Theming tab lets you replace the Jive images and icons in the client application with your own branding. Users will see the updated theme as soon as they restart Outlook. If you recently upgraded from a Jive for Outlook version earlier than 2.0, note that you'll have to recreate your theme.

You can modify:
  • The colors used to style the Social Bar and the borders of various dialog boxes.
  • The Jive icon that's shown in the Social Bar, the Accounts tab, and the filter menu.
  • The Jive logo image that's shown at the upper right of the social bar, as well as when you create a status update or direct message.
Note: You can't remove the Powered by Jive logo.

To create a unified experience, you should update all of these items. You'll see a dynamic preview as you specify new branding elements.

To update the theme:

  1. Go to System > Settings > Jive for Outlook > Theming.
  2. To change the theme colors, type the name or hex code of a web-safe color.
  3. To change images, click Choose File for any of the images. Note that hovering over the text describing any image highlights that element in the preview.
  4. Click Update to save your changes.
  5. If you want to back out your changes, you can return to the default theme by clicking Reset Theme. When you click Reset, you'll have to start over and re-select all the elements of your theme.
