Theming Jive for Outlook

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

Fastpath: Admin Console: System > Settings > Extended APIs

You can 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 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.
