Using themes

With JungleMail for Office 365, you can easily apply a custom collection of style and design settings - called a theme - to your newsletter blocks, sections, and content. Themes is a great way to keep your internal communication style consistent.

How themes work

When you add a new block or section to your newsletter, JungleMail for Office 365 applies default styling settings to those elements. You can find those settings in the Design tab. If you make changes to those settings, they are applied to your current newsletter immediately.

However, you may want to save a custom configuration of Design tab settings for later use. This is where themes come in handy.

To create a new theme

1. Open the app and go to the Design tab.

2. Make changes to the default settings and click Save as Theme.

3. Give this theme a name and click Save.

To apply a theme

Open the Design tab and select a theme in the drop-down menu.

You can also access themes under Company Themes in the Gallery tab in the Templates section. Click Apply to apply theme settings to your current newsletter.

How to use themes properly

It is important to know that Style tab settings of a block or section override theme settings. For example, if you set Subtitle block background color to green in the Style tab, and then apply a theme with a different color, the block background will remain green. To make a modified block or section inherit theme settings, follow these steps:

1. Select a block or section.

2. Select the three-dot icon next to the block/section title, then select Inherit Style from Body.

If you're working on a built-in or custom template, its styling will likely be modified in the Style tab, i.e., at the block/section level. In this case, you would have to apply theme settings for each block and (or) section individually by following the steps described above. However, if you start building your newsletter from a blank slate, we recommend to build the structure and content first, then apply a theme and only then modify styling for individual blocks or sections, if necessary. This could save you a lot of time.
