Changing app layout - toolbar colour and tabs menu

Hi All,

 

For apps please can you tell me if it's possible to:

 1. Change the toolbar colour (electric blue is clashing with our corporate colors)

 2. Have the report tabs along the bottom of the screen instead of as a tool bar on the left hand side (as below)

Thank you!

Hi @PowerWhy 

You can change the App colour by updating the App in the workspace. On the setup tab, in "App Theme Color" you can select an alternative colour from the palette available.

To give page tabs along the bottom in an App is a bit more involved.

First you'll need to go to the Settings of the Report in the App Workspace, and turn on the "Pages Pane" which will display tabs along the bottom of the Report.

Then update the App in the Workspace (The same place you can change the App colour)

When you update the App, turn the "New Navigation Builder" switch off.

This has two further options:

1) App Landing page Specific content, will open the main page of a Report in the App collection. This should be your main Report

2) App Landing Page None, will simply give a list of the content in the App which the user can click on to navigate.

This works well for Apps with only one Report in them. You'll have to use the Navigation to easily switch between multiple Reports.

Hope this helps
