Add a logo to the sidebar in Classic

Knowledge Article Number 000003586
Description Learn how System Administrators can add a logo to the Classic Homepage Page Layout.

Upload your Image

As a System Administrator you can display a logo on your sidebar, located on the left-hand side of most pages. To add a logo to your sidebar, be sure to have the image saved to the Documents tab (read how to upload and replace documents), making sure to check the box to make the image "externally available" (for portal users) and that the image is in a folder that is accessible to internal users.


Create a New Image Custom Component


1. Go to Setup | Build | Customize | Home | Home Page Components.
2. Click New.
3. If a screen with text shows, click Next.
4. Name the component.  For the purposes of this article, we'll call it "Company Logo."  
5. Select "Image" from the Radio boxes, and then click Next.

6. Click "Insert an Image," and be sure to select the folder selected in the previous section ("Upload your Image").
7. Select the image you uploaded.  It must be under 100 kilobytes (KB). 
If necessary, click on the image and resize it using the selection box so that it's no wider than the indicator below the image box, and then click Save.

Create a new Home Page Layout and add the component


1. Go to Setup | Build | Customize | Home | Home Page Layouts (It's directly underneath Home Page Components).
2. Click New. 
Name your new Homepage.  Optionally, if you have an existing Homepage layout from which you'd like to base this one, you can select that now.
4. Click Save.

5. Select the individual components you'd like to add to the layout.  Be sure to include your new Component (we called it "Company Logo") created in the previous section.  You'll find it in the "Select Narrow Components to Show" section.
6. Click Next.

7. Select the order of the Left and Right columns as desired, and then click Save & Assign.
8. For each profile which you'd like to see the new Homepage with the new "Company Logo", change the picklist next to that profile to the name of your new Homepage.  
9. Click Save.
