Here's an overview of all the possible settings in your theme:

Edit name

Type in a name for your theme. A tip is to make it descriptive, so you can easily recognize it among the other themes, the next time you need it.

Upload a screen background

You can upload an image that will fill your entire message screen. Make sure you make it 600 pixels wide. The height depends on the contents of your message - the more modules you add to your message, the higher the background image needs to be.

Upload a bookmark icon image

The bookmark icon is relevant if you're creating a theme for an app. The image you add in here, will appear on your employees phones when they add to homescreen.
The image has to be square - for instance 300x300 px.

Header settings:

Button corner roundness - move the slider to determine the roundness of your buttons.

Button transparency - move the slider to have the buttons appear with more or less transparency.

The final settings concern the appearance of the footer in your messages.
It's not an absolute necessity to have a footer, but you might find it convenient to have your company address, a link to your company website or something else available here.

Upload a footer background - if you want to use an image in your footer, you can upload it here. The image should be 600 px wide - the height is a matter of preferences. You can't add a link to your footer when using an image.

If you want a text in the footer, go ahead and click the blue box with the white pen. A text box will appear, where you can write a text or add a link. You can delete the footer by clicking the blue box with the white x. Background and text color settings are described below:
