Update Your Logo
When you upload a new logo, it will replace any existing Instant Church Directory logo in all locations. Your updated logo will appear on your administrator account and also on the members' website. Your custom logo will not be updated in the mobile app.
Upload your logo using the drag-and-drop feature or click the + to upload a logo from your computer. Once uploaded, your logo will show to the right of the box.
IMPORTANT: The logo will be placed on a white background, so you will want to be sure your logo is not white.
Change Your Directory Colors
Updating your directory color will change the default blue accent color, mainly seen in the menu bars, menu text, and buttons to the new color that you have chosen. Be sure to choose a color that will not interfere with the readability of the menu text. Use the color picker to choose your color preference.
NOTE: If you choose to update the colors, but not update to another logo, the blue Instant Church Directory logo will change to the color you've chosen. The color picker will not change the color of any logo that YOU upload, however.
Change Church Label
Under Church Label Singular, replace "Church" with the singular version of the word you'd like to use instead of Church. This change will only show to administrators. This wording will only show in places such as "your online church directory" that appears on the dashboard of your admin account.
Examples: Residence, Charity, Society, Organization, Business
