Theming versus Branding
In Nextcloud, theming and branding are distinct yet complementary features that enhance user experience and your corporate identity. While often used interchangeably, they serve unique functions.
Nextcloud Hub’s built-in theming app is the recommended approach for customizing the look and feel of your server’s interface. This app ensures compatibility with Web User Interface changes and allows for easy customizations. You can adjust visual elements like the logo, color scheme, and organizational name, and essential URLs such as privacy policies and imprints. The Web User Interface also allows tailoring the color and logos in various emails sent by Nextcloud (e.g., share information, activities, welcome emails).
Theming is all about giving a personalized touch to your Nextcloud server, aligning it visually with your organization’s aesthetic and ensuring a cohesive brand experience across all user touchpoints.
Going a step further, Nextcloud’s branding capabilities offer a deeper level of customization. Branding involves incorporating custom visual assets like logos and icons into the client interface, creating a custom help page, and implementing pre-configured settings for seamless integration within your organization. This ensures that when users access Nextcloud, they are immediately met with an interface that reflects your organization’s identity, bypassing the need to select a server and entering login credentials directly.
Branded clients replace the standard Nextcloud logo and name in the app drawer with your organization’s branding, offering a more tailored experience.
Overall, branding in Nextcloud extends beyond the visual appeal, providing an experience that feels like an integral part of your organization. It supports a wide range of platforms including Android, iOS and desktop environments like Linux, Mac and Windows.
Available as part of our Standard and Premium subscriptions, branding elevates the user experience to a level where Nextcloud Hub not only functions but also feels like an extension of your organization’s corporate style.
