We have a new Customization policy group that contains the new Silo Branding and Homepage policies.


This policy group allows customer administrators to brand Silo, as well as, pre-configure a Homepage for the end users to brand Silo and allows admins to pre-configure a Homepage for users.

Click the Customization arrow to expand the policy. Here you can set policy for Silo Branding and Homepage. Click the Edit button to expand the Silo Branding policy page.


Silo Branding

This is the Silo Branding page. You have the option to add a Logo, select a Background Image or Color, set a Tab color, add a Window Title, and create a Silo Vanity URL.


Organization Logo


The organization’s logo displays in the top-left corner on the New Tabs page only. When it is left blank, there is nothing displayed.



 takes approximately 15 minutes for the new brand to update. You will need to log out and then log in to see your branding update.

In this example, a Background Color, Key Color, and Window Title are selected.


See the result in this screenshot.


The red arrow points to the new Window Title. The green arrow points to the New Tab that has the Key Color at the top and the background is the light green color, all set up in the Branding Policy section.

Silo Vanity URL

This is a custom name appended to the gestsilo.com URL that you can provide to your users to have a branded front end. Once you enter your Vanity URL, please click the Save button.


The URL is also found under the Edit Orgs panel in the User and Orgs section.

You may edit this URL in either section. Additional information about how to best use this URL is available in the Support link



Vanity URLs can only contain letters (a-z, A-Z) or digits (0-9) and must be between 2 and 63 characters long.


At the end bottom right of the Branding page, there are two buttons: Preview and Save.

The Preview button gives you the ability to preview the changes before applying them. When you click the Preview button, the Silo Custom Branding Preview modal displays the organization logo, background image, key color in the button and tab. We do not show banners on the preview page.
