We want to thank our users for all of the great feedback you’ve sent in since launch. We’ve been listening! Today, we’d like to update you on some of your most highly-requested features.

One of the most highly requested items was more options to align your presentation with your company’s brand. Here are hacks to get your brand looking beautiful - and Beautiful looking like your brand! (Or pretty close, at least!)

You can adjust your color palette to create a brand-specific color scheme. To customize your palette, click Colors > Edit Theme > Colors. To change the color, double click on the palette choice you would like to change.  A color selection box will appear. Choose the color you would like, then click Apply Changes to Presentation to save your changes. Users can either manually change the color or paste in a hex value.

Your company logo can also be put on each of your slides! To add, click on the Colors option from the left side menu. Click Edit Theme, then click the Footer tab. In there, you’ll see spots for ‘Logo On Light’ and ‘Logo On Dark’. You’ll want to provide both. The ‘Logo on light’ should be the version of your logo with dark type or marks so it stands out on a white or light background. The ‘Logo on dark’ should have light text and be suitable for when the background color is dark. Best is .png files with transparency. Upload your 2 logos, then click Apply Changes to Presentation. Note that if you want that logo footer on most slides, be sure to select the “On by default” choice for the “Visible” option.
