My name is Eliot Munroe. I work for G cits on the Gold Coast of Australia, we’re an award-winning Microsoft Partner who used the cloud to help growing businesses everywhere get really productive really fast, so today we’re going to be looking at how you can personalize the office 365 login screen.
So this is the standard login screen. when you go to portal office comm, it comes up with sign-in with your work or school account and you can change this to be your your business logo at the top or your writing to do with your help desk or something like that and you can have your own picture over here so, for example, when I type in my email address, le the GC IPS comm go to the next screen, it knows I am part of oz bees web group or am I we’ve rebranded in May 2015 when me and my two brothers merged our businesses.
We’re now known as GC 80s, but I haven’t gotten around to changing this page, so I thought we’ll hit two birds with one stone will change the branding and show you how you can change your own branding, so we’re going to log in here to office 365 and you need to be logged in as an administrator.
So when I sign in, I’m taken directly to the admin Center if you’re an admin and you’re not taken directly, here you can click on the app launcher at the top and then click admin and it’s going to take you here.
Now we’re going to go down to Azure ad and we’re going to click here because azure ad is what lets us customize the branding for office 365, it’s technically a separate subscription, but as your ad is the the service that runs the identities in office 365, so things like user security or a multi-factor authentication or the branding of the login screen and it does a bunch more things.
But we’re only going to focus on the branding right now, so as your ad separate subscription, you have to sign up for it and I’m going to show you how you do that now.I’ve already signed up for a jar ad under this account, but I’m going to switch to an account that doesn’t have an azure ad subscription and then we’re going to do a test sign-up.
you go down to admin centers as your ad at the bottom and then it takes us to the Microsoft a just sign up, so I did something silly there where I pause the recording and didn’t start it again. I’m not going to do it again, but I click Next on those earlier screens and then it brought me up at portal Azure comm which is the new Microsoft Azure portal.
If you click Azure ad from within that office 365 admin Center and you’ve already previously signed up to Microsoft Azure, then it won’t take you to this screen, it’s going to take you to manage windows azure comm that is the old portal, it’s the default as of right now as of the time we’re forming this.
So if this has happened to you that Windows Azure comm go to the top of the address bar here and we’re going to type portal Dodger comm. it’s going to keep you signed in. but it’s going to take you to the the new portal where we can manage add your Active Directory. so you’ll be greeted with a screen that looks like this.
Now you may not have all the tiles here that I have,you should have something on the left hand side, now you can type as your Active Directory and we click on Azure Active Directory here, from here we have the company branding section where we can customize the text and graphics your users see when they sign into your hrad rhymes, so then this blades going to come up company branding now a status.
Here is configured, because yours is probably not configured, we can edit the company branding,you can add company branding and it’s going to bring up the company branding that we have now this is where your pictures are required or your company branding is required, so this sign-in page image has dimensions of 14 20 by 1200 and this one here is obviously going to replace this.
So I’m going to open that up open branding open illustration JPEG paste that there that does resize little strange, but hopefully, it doesn’t look like that I’m going to replace this banner image here which is the default office 365 image and then we’re going to replace that with our logo.
Then I’m going to make some changes here, return to DC IPS, calm the post, sign out link URL is going to be CIT Escom sign-in page background color. I’ll leave I will update that to our G CITS square.
There are two images,because one is for a dark theme, so you can upload a logo, that is better on dark backgrounds, if you have them videos are exactly the same, click Save, it’s going to update Tennant branding, so now we are done.
I’ll make a new in private window, we go to portal to office comm, those changes have updated ,now I’m looking at this straightaway and you know I don’t really like the design, but I just threw this together quickly, there are a few mistakes.
