 +====== Branding======
 +
 +Branding capabilities are optional and may not be available for your enterprise. 
 +
 +==== Before Creating a Brand====
 +
 +Branding requires that you make design decisions, and select an image file for client components. You should prepare the image file before beginning the process of creating a brand. The logo file must be in PNG format, up to 250 px by 250 px, and up to 150kB in size.
 +
 +The brand logo will appear in the iPad UI only, and only when the iPad is in landscape orientation.
 +==== After Creating a Brand====
 +Once you have created one or more client or portal brands, you can publish them to production. Only one brand may be active at a time, and it cannot be deleted. (Deleting a brand could cause conflicts with deployed profiles that use an existing brand.)
 +
 +===== Branding Your Client=====
 +
 +A client brand includes a single logo that you can include in the client’s look and feel. 
 +
 +**To create a new client brand for a supported platform:**
 +
 +  - Log in to the Open Mobile Portal, and click the **Configuration** tab. 
 +  - Click **Manage Brands**, and then click **Create Brand**.
 +  - On the **Create a Brand** tab, enter values for the following: 
 +    * In **Brand Name**, assign a new brand name. 
 +    * In **Platform**, select iOS.
 +    * In **Software Version**, select the software version from the dropdown.
 +  - On the **Image/Icon** tab, click **Browse**, then browse to the logo file you wish to upload. 
 +  - Click **Save**.
 +
 +Once created, you can publish the brand so that you can include it in your Open Mobile profiles.
 +
 +**To edit an existing client brand:**
 +
 +  - Under **List of Brands**, select the brand you wish to edit.
 +  - In the **Actions** column, click **Manage**.
 +  - Enter the requested text strings, or upload the requested files.
 +  - When complete, click **Save**. 
 +
 +<note important>A published brand may not be edited.</note>
 +
 +===== Publishing a Brand=====
 +
 +A published brand can be included in your Open Mobile profiles, and can be shared with your child accounts. A published brand may not be edited.
 +
 +**To publish a brand**:
 +  - Create a brand (see above).
 +  - From the **List of Brands**, select the brand you wish to publish. Then, in the **Actions** column, click **Publish**.
 +  - On the **Publish Client Brand** page, click **Publish**, and then click **Yes** to confirm publication. 
 +
 +===== Sharing a Client Brand=====
 +
 +Once a brand is published, it can be shared with your child accounts. These accounts will be able to include the brand in their own client profiles. (You can only share a brand one level down—that is, with your immediate child accounts.)
 +
 +**To make a brand shareable:**
 +
 +  - On the **List of Brands**, select the published brand you wish to share. Then, in the **Actions** column, click **Share**.
 +  - On the **Share Client Brand** dialog, select the direct child accounts with which you wish to share the brand. 
 +  - Click **Share**, and then click **Yes** to confirm sharing.
 +
 +==== Applying the Brand to a Profile====
 +
 +Once you have created and published a brand, you can apply it to a profile.
 +
 +**To apply a brand and styling to a supported client:**
 +
 +  - On the **Configure a Profile** page, under **Brands and Features**, click **Configure.**
 +  - Click **Select a Brand**.
 +  - Under **Client Branding**, select a brand from the drop-down list of previously created brands. Only a single brand may be assigned to a profile at one time.
 +  - Click **Save**.
