The Banner card allows users to quickly and easily create their own custom branded banner content. With this card, users may customize text, a logo image, and the background of their banner content to meet their requirements. Users may also choose to take the default settings of the card, which will display an Appspace branded banner. 

Features of this card include:

  • Ability to enter stylized text to display in their banner. The Appspace tagline “Everyone should love where they work” is used as a default placeholder to illustrate to users what a banner could look like.
  • Ability to upload a single image file as a custom image to be displayed as a logo in the banner content.

  • Ability to flip the position of text and logo. For instance, if the Text is positioned on the left, the Image will be on the right.
