How To – Change the background image and quotes

Permissions Required: Admin/ and you must have a enterprise licence


Step One: Create the required folder

First we need to find the SecureSend folder in the Repository  to do this you will need to be logged in as your Admin user if you do not have an admin user or not sure what this is please contact

Once you are logged in and you can see your dashboard find the Repository button in the top right hand corner

Next we go to Data Dictionary > SecureSend the easiest way to do this is to use the contents list to the righ hand side as the location may vary on your sever

Once you are in the folder we are going to creat another folder called Background Images (Customisable) you can name this whatever you like this is my prefrance for ease of access

Next we need to add an aspect to the folder called “undefined (pfss:sharedFilesFolder)”

And finally we need to add a custom rule to the folder this rule is called “Create Link” This rule needs to be exactly as stated in the images below

Keep evertyhing as the default values and change only the 2 boxs in the pictures below

Once this is done we are done with this folder for now


Step Two: Edit and upload the JSON file

To change the quotes on the background image we need to first download the JSON file from the top of the article, then using a word editor (Notepad, TextEdit) we need to adjust the “author” and the “quoteText” within the JSON file please see images below

You can make as many or as little as you like just keep them with in the code block for example mine are below

“author”: “proverb“,
“quoteText”: “As any farmer will tell you, only a fool lets a fox guard the henhouse door.

Changed to 

“author”: “Albert Einstein“,
“quoteText”: “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.

Keep the formatting the same as the orginal

once you are happy you can now uplaod the JSON file to the SecureSend folder do not adjust the name of the file just upload as it is


Step Three: Upload you choosen background image

Once you have yor chosen image we are going to go back to our Background Images folder and uplaod it, once this is done we ned to find its URL and specify it in the config please follow the imges below to the letter

Once you have uploaded the image you need to find its shared link we do this by looking at its properties we are going to copy the shared img url and paste into the config file in the URL to background image box. just replace whats in the box with the newly copied URL and press save
