Features Used Lightly – 1 of 3


There are many wonderful features within Maintenance Connection, and some that we think are very interesting yet not used much. In this first in a three part series about lightly used features in Maintenance Connection, we will review the ability to modify the colors and HTML text displayed in the Service Requester.

Customize Service Requester Colors or Background

The Appearance Tab of the SR Configuration Tool allows you to set the color of displayed titles, headers, text and links. You can even set a background color/image or modify the logo displayed.

  • – would bring forward the color picker on which a color can be selected.

 

Click “Apply” when finished and then click “Close“. Click “Preview” to view the new page in the Service Requester. The updated HTML might appear as follows:
