Brandguide Migration Tutorial




Creating a Brandguide

1. To create a brandguide, click into the brandfolder with which you want the brandguide to be associated. The option to create a new Brandguide will be in the top left corner of the brandfolder level.

2. After selecting + New Brandguide, a modal will expand and allow you to set the name, unique URL, and card image.


3. The brandguide will appear as a new tile on the organization level, and you can change the settings you selected upon creation by hovering over the ellipsis.


Navigating Brandguide

Once you have clicked into your Brandguide, you will be able to start editing and customizing the page.

With the toolbar, you can:

  • Adjust the overall settings of the Brandguide
  • Adjust the styling, such as font size, font family, colors, and favicon image 
  • Add custom styling through the Advanced Styles using CSS
  • Preview the brandguide as an external user



The settings page within the Brandguide will allow you to change the name, URL, and privacy settings.


Note: Preventing access requests on a private Brandguide will prevent users without access to the Brandguide from viewing or requesting access. Brandguide permissions do not trickle down; this also pertains to users with higher permission levels, such as organization or brandfolder admins.

If you have any questions about this feature, please contact support@brandfolder.com.
