Rebranding (also known as White Labeling) an application lets you distribute it to your users with the same functionality but a different identity. Syncfusion Dashboard Platform allows you to rebrand some of its applications/products:

Figure 2: Rebranded Dashboard Server Environment
The rebranding changes are handled at two distinct levels: application and installer.
At the application level, the possible rebranding changes that you can handle yourself with items from your end to replace ours are:
- Company-specific branded texts, URLs, logos, and images across the UI and dashboard file extensions.
- Subscription email templates.

To handle the application-level branding in Syncfusion Dashboard Designer, configure the necessary parameters in the BrandingText.xml file installed in the following location:
[Installation drive]:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Dashboard Designer\DashboardDesigner\CustomBranding

For Dashboard Server, the application-level branding can be handled through its UI with the Site Settings configuration under the System Administrator account.
