We have already covered some of the exciting out-of-the-box user interface changes introduced by the Carina update in our Top 10 Features blog. As if those updates were not exciting enough, this Spring Wave is also introducing the concept of Theming.


Theming will allow a CRM administrator to add their own company logo to CRM, as well as change the colors of the user interface. An administrator can navigate to Settings > Customizations, where they will find the new “Themes” option.

By clicking on it, you can create a brand new theme or clone an existing theme. The theme editor is extremely simple and all you need to do is choose a logo and the colors to be used in your theme as you can see below. From this theme editor, you can also click on the Preview button in order to see what your theme will look like before publishing it to all users.

Once you publish your theme, all users will see your chosen branding when logging into CRM. The screenshot below shows you an example of a CRM theme.
