Set a custom color theme and logo

With the OpenProject Enterprise Edition you can replace the default OpenProject logo with your own logo. In addition, you can define your own color theme which allows you to implement your corporate identity in OpenProject.

In order to change the logo and color theme, first make sure that you have an activated Enterprise Edition.

Next, make sure you are signed into OpenProject with an administrator account and click on your user avatar in the upper right corner (1). Select Administration from the dropdown menu (2) and select Design from the side menu on the left side (3).

The design page provides several options to customize your OpenProject Enterprise Edition:

  • Upload your own logo to replace the default OpenProject logo (4)
  • Set a custom favicon which is shown as an icon in your browser window/tab (5)
  • Upload a custom touch icon which is shown on your smartphone or tablet when you bookmark OpenProject on your home screen (6)
  • Set custom colors to adjust nearly any aspect of OpenProject, such as the color of the header and side menu, the link color and the hover color (7)

Set a custom touch icon

To set a custom touch icon that appears on your smartphone’s or tablet’s homescreen when you bookmark a page, make sure you have a PNG file with the dimensions 180 by 180 pixels. Select the Choose File button and select the file from your hard drive to upload it.

Click the Upload button to confirm and upload your custom touch icon.

When you bookmark your OpenProject environment’s URL, you will see that the uploaded icon is used as a custom touch icon.

Specify custom colors

Aside from uploading logos and icons, you can also customize the colors used within your OpenProject environment.

To do this change the color values (entered as color hex code) in the Custom Colors section. In order to find the right hex code for a color, you can use a website, such as color-hex.com.
You can see the selected color in the preview area next to the color hex code. Therefore, it is possible to see the selected color before saving the changes.

Configure custom colors

You can set the following custom colors:

  1. Primary color: The primary color changes the color of many parts of the application, including the color of the header and the edit buttons. Along with the alternative color, the primary color defines the majority of your OpenProject’s color theme.
  2. Primary color dark: This color is used for hover effects. When you hover over links in the header navigation or select edit buttons (whose color is set by the primary color), the primary color dark is applied.
  3. Alternative color: The most important buttons (e.g. the work package or wiki create button) use the color defined here.
  4. Header background color: By default, the header background color is set through the primary color. However, you can set a separate header background color which leaves the button colors defined by the primary color unaffected.
  5. Header item font color: You can separately control the font color of the links shown in the header navigation. If you define e.g. a white header background color you should choose a darker header item font color in order to still see the links shown in the header navigation.
  6. Header item font hover color: With this setting you can change the item font color shown when hovering with the mouse over entries in the header navigation.
  7. Header item background hover color: This color setting controls the background color for the entries in the header navigation when hovering over them with your mouse.
  8. Header border bottom color: You can show a line right below the header navigation. This makes sense e.g. if you are using a white header but want a clear separation to the rest of the application. Set the color you want to use for the line below the header. Leave this setting empty if you don’t want to display a line below the header.
  9. Content link color: Adjust this setting in order to change the link color (e.g. for the selected menu in the side navigation of a project or the administration or the breadcrumb color).
  10. Main menu background color: This setting allows you to change the background color of the side menu displayed on the left side.

As soon as you press the Save button your changes are applied and the colors of your OpenProject environment are adjusted accordingly.
