titleIntroduction to this page

Managers of a Space can create a theme for their Space. Users who are created within that Space (or a sub-Space below it) will see that theme when they use Chorus.

Users only ever see one theme in Chorus - either the site theme, or the theme that their primary Space uses. They will not see different themes when they move between Spaces. Users who do not have a primary Space will see the site theme.

Consider: Before creating themes in Spaces, if your objective is to rebrand the entire site, and you are a Site Administrator, then you can instead use a Site theme.

Chorus provides a file attachment tool to help you attach a file or files to other files.

When a file has an attachment, you will see a paperclip icon in the top right of its thumbnails. This can be clicked to view the attachment.

When a file has been attached to another file, you will see a paperclip icon with an arrow, in the bottom right of its thumbnail. This can be clicked to view every file that has this file as an attachment.

A new window will open to allow you to edit the settings of the theme. 

This page provides a preview of what the theme will look like, before it is applied. You can change settings such as the logo (including its size and location), the foreground and background colors of the search bar and banner, email colors and the login box banner. Each customisable element has an accompanying box with the context of what is being edited.

A foreground color can be set for the banner to change the text and icon colours, the banner background color will set a solid colour across the entire banner. The banner background can also be set as an image instead of just a solid background color, this is set to cover the banner background and unlike the logo cannot have its size and positioning set. If a background image is set, you can remove it by clicking the “Remove Image” button.

The majority of colors in Chorus emails can be customised to match the theme, including the background color, banner background color, title background color and title text color. The email box also offers the facility to send a test email.

A toggle for “greyscale mode” is presented under the General context, this will toggle all the elements that use the default Chorus light blue (usually on interactive elements) to a grey. Toggling this toggle on and off in the UI will show a preview of this.

3. The display will now change to a split view (double viewing panes). If you have not used this view before, there is more information on how Chorus uses double viewing panes to help you with drag-and-drop and other time-saving features here: B3.1 Work with double viewing panes.

4. Keep the file or files you want to attach in one pane. Use the other pane to navigate to the files to which you will attach the files.

For example, in the screenshot below the left hand pane contains a number of images, and the right hand pane contains a PDF of legal terms. The PDF will be attached to the photos.

Select (by clicking of tapping) the files which will receive the new attachment. You must select at least one file, or click Cancel to quit.

5. When you are ready, click "Attach" to complete the attachment or attachments.

The thumbnails will now have a paperclip attached to their thumbnails in the top right corner. The PDF thumbnail indicates that it is attached to files, using a paperclip in the bottom right hand corner with an outbound arrow.

Good to know: Attachments are managed by Chorus as collections of files. When a logo is dropped in the designated area it will populate the theme color palette with the dominant colors from the logo, and also automatically apply colors throughout the theme. The palette can be edited afterwards, if the chosen palette is not exactly right.you see a file with an attachment, you can view the attachments using the right-hand tools (Attachments → View attachments).
