Look and Feel

The Look and Feel wizards allow the customization of virtually every aspect of the End User and Power User interface. Immediate visual feedback of the effect is provided for most customizations. Several different Look & Feel Schemes may be created and assigned to different teams. The look and feel seen by a particular user is based on their Primary Team, thus allowing custom branding for valued users.

The customizations include variation in font, mouse-over effects, scrollbars, borders, graphics, headers/footers and placement preferences.

The following table provides a guide to which wizard controls each type of customization on each element of the interface. These wizards are accessed from Setup > Look & Feel for the current scheme or by editing a different scheme via Setup > Look & Feel > Manage End-user Schemes or Setup > Look & Feel > Manage Power User Schemes.
