Customizing the Pivot User Interface
Using the Custom Branding page (see branding guide linked above), you may also add branding for the weekly email alerts that your users see as well as newsletters that you choose to send.
If you may add an additional optional custom logo for weekly email alerts and/or an optional custom logo for newsletters. This would be used if there was a reason you wanted different branding for email alerts and newsletters. If you do not add a custom logo for alerts and newsletters, these emails will automatically use the primary logo and header colors you choose for the home dashboard page. For most cases this will be the best choice.
Configuring Institution Search Settings
On the Search Settings page (Admin > Institutional Settings > Search Settings), you can set the default selected locations and citizenship requirements for user searches. When users search for funding opportunities, the locations and citizenship requirements you select on this page are selected by default. The user can still change or clear these selections when they search.
To change either setting, select Edit, enter or select/clear the locations, and select Save.
