Article summary

Organizations prefer to enforce a particular branding throughout the enterprise devices. Once your Android devices are enrolled in Scalefusion, you can use the Branding option to upload your wallpapers and then apply them to the devices. In this document, we will see how to create & apply a Branding configuration.

Before You Begin

  1. Login to Scalefusion Dashboard
  2. The device should be enrolled with Scalefusion
  3. Have a couple of wallpaper images and logos stored on your local computer.

Create a Branding

  1. Navigate to Device Profiles & Policies > Branding. Click on CREATE NEW BRAND.
  2. Enter a name for your Branding so that you can refer to it when required.
    Set as Default Brand: If you toggle this On, then this brand will be set as the default brand on all the enrolled devices.
    Lock Screen Message: Enter a message that will be visible when the device screen is locked. Custom fields can also be entered as part of the lock screen message. For example, $device.serial_no.
  3. Next, move to Androidtab. There are four sections under which the brand settings can be configured,
    1. Basic: Configure basic branding settings
    2. Advanced: Configure Advanced branding settings like changing app icon size, app icons' text color and more.
    3. OEM SDK: Configure Boot and shutdown animation settings for Lenovo and Samsung Knox devices
    4. Alert Sounds: Configure alert sounds when devices are buzzed, the message is broadcasted, or a workflow alert is sent.
      The settings you configure here are visible on the sample device on the left, giving a preview of how it will reflect on the device.
