Theming & Localization
The reception app automatically inherits the Member Portal colors you’ve set up in the Admin portal (Settings /Member Apps/Theme).
The Welcome screen background image will look blurry:
- You can also upload a logo that will be visible on the RnD Reception app and our recommendation is to include a transparent logo for the best visuals.
The Reception App will automatically inherit the Language translations you’ve provided for the Member Portal. You can change the language from the dropdown on the Reception App Home screen.
The OfficeRnD Reception App inherits all of the theming setup coming from the OfficeRnD admin portal. The background of the app is customized for your brand. It will automatically pick:
- The image of the location you’ve selected- more info about setting this up can be found here.
- If there is no location image, the background image of the Member Portal- more info about this can be found here.
- If there is no location or background image, it becomes a gradient of the background and primary color you’ve selected in your Member Portal theme- more info about this can be found here.
