Creating and uploading corporate logo in SuccessFactors

Creating and uploading corporate logo in SuccessFactors

Customers can themselves add a company logo to SuccessFactors so that it displays on the login page and other relevant headers within SuccessFactors. If you already see a company logo in SuccessFactors, your logo was posted as part of the implementation.

Part 1: Creating a corporate logo suitable for SuccessFactors

For optimal experience throughout SuccessFactors including the printing of reports, org charts, PDF documents, PRD, Forms, Certificate etc. please follow the guidelines below.

File Type:

->  *.png

->   *.gif

Do not use Animated Images. Not recommended to use *.bmp

 Size:

-> Try to keep it < 10 KB

Dimensions:

-> Maximum Width = 210 pixels

-> Maximum Height = 40 pixels

Do not quash below warning


Color mode:

-> RGB Mode – Standard 8‑bits-per-channel images with a range of 0 (black) to 255 (white) for each of the RGB (red, green, blue) components in a color image.

Background:

-> Transparent or glassy

Most corporations already have or can provide a basic logo, which can be tweaked to meet above requirements using free online image editing tools such as

pixlr.com [OR] resizeimage.net [OR] lunapic.com [OR] ezgif.com

Sample dummy logo:

Please use different logo’s  as shown below for individual SuccessFactors instances, using the same logo across instances could potentially create confusion and inadvertent mistakes especially when certain customers individuals involved in multiple instances during implementation or post go live, highly recommend logo uniqueness on each instance as its more conspicuous. Sample transparent logo’s shown.

  • The success-factors that you have described are no doubt some of the amazing factors but the thing goes a bit difficult when some people are unable to create logos even on free tools like those that provide 3d logo maker or either provide other designs like corporate logo design, you will get these mostly on free logo making tools. The point is that people do require some much easier thing to create logos on their own this will become a more success-factor for a lot of corporations to get logo on their own instead of hiring other people for doing the work.
