Customize alerts for employees according to what you want them to view


Internal branding helps to cement your organization’s corporate identity.

A new feature from DeskAlerts makes it even easier to send messages with a branded design and can assist you to follow your branding guidelines in internal communication, and build a strong corporate brand from the inside out.

But if that isn’t for you, we can design custom alert templates for you to ensure your DeskAlerts content reflects the professional look and feel of your brand.


Skin Editor and Skin Services: what’s the difference?

Our new Skin Editor feature lets any user with the correct permissions to create, clone and change the appearances of the alerts templates and skins. This includes customizing the font type, size, colors, border colors and width, changing the logo image in the alert frame and adding custom text to the bottom.

With the Skin Editor you can create an unlimited number of custom notification templates. It is simple to use, and you can create and send a message with a new template in as little as 5 minutes!

There’s still also the previous option for our clients to order individual template designs for alerts, created by the designers and developers on the DeskAlerts team. This is called the Skin Service and includes more variable parameters for the appearance of alerts and can be done even if you don’t have Skin Editor in your package.

Essentially with the Skin Editor, you design the templates. With the Skin Service we design them.

Custom Templates Can Make Your Internal Communications Stand Out

Your communications and marketing teams spend a lot of time and money creating corporate identity systems and branding guidelines. It makes sense to ensure your internal communications reflect this branding. Custom templates can convey a look and feel that help your employees to develop a more personal connection with your corporate brand.

Creating a suite of different templates is especially useful in the following scenarios:

  • if your organization wants to communicate information from different departments for example IT, Human Resources, facilities management. You can create custom templates that reflect sub-brands that employees can easily recognize and distinguish when they receive a notification. 
  • If you want to create an internal brand for a new project or initiative to help build hype and excitement.
  • If your organization uses color codes, for example the types used in hospitals and healthcare to categorize emergencies and incidents.
  • If you are rebranding your corporate identity and need to update your internal communications to reflect this.
  • If you’re looking for new and innovative ways to reinforce your branding within your company.
