Brand Kit - How to enforce branding with OptiSigns designer

This feature requires Pro Plus or Enterprise Plan.

OptiSigns provides a simple and powerful designer app and hundreds of free templates for you to create content and publish to screens in minutes. You can also start from scratch and develop your own templates with the designer app and share it with your teams and use it across the company. What's more, you can lock a certain part of your design so that other users without privilege cannot change the part, and also limit the font and color codes other people can use. This is a feature of importance for those customers who would like to enforce corporate branding. 

To apply enforce branding, you need to go to the brand kit section in the designer app. Only the Owner or Admin user can edit it, it is disabled for other users. Once the enforce branding is set, it will be applied to everyone who are using the designer app.
