Theming

OwnerRez is designed to make communication with your guests easier and more effective.  A large part of doing this successfully is branding.  The Settings > Theming area provides a way to establish a consistent brand image:

  • Customizable headers and footers for your emails, legal agreements, and forms.
  • Customize your name, phone number, business name, social media links and email return address used for guest communications, if you don't want to use the main information in your account profile.

Or, you can also use this area to establish an inconsistent brand image, by creating separate Themes for different properties or groups of properties in your OwnerRez account.

We've created a walk-through video about creating and using themes.  Before reading the rest of this article, watch this first:

Theme Creation

By default, OwnerRez creates one theme and applies it to all your properties.  For most clients, this is what you want - your business should have one identity.

To add or create a customized theme, users can navigate to Settings > Branding & Legal > Theming.

Theming

To create another theme, click the +Create Theme button.

+Create Theme

This invites users to enter a new name, phone number, contact information, logo and social media for their new theme. 

If users have multiple properties and themes, they can choose which theme should be used for which property, by clicking on the "Property Mapping" button.  This gives a list of all your properties, and for each one, a dropdown list of your available themes. Choose the right theme for each property and Save your changes.

Customizing a Theme

NOTE: if at any time the logo looks too large on the Theming, users will need to manually decrease the size by dragging a corner to make it smaller. Make sure to view it within a Template and on the Renter Agreement to confirm it is the appropriate size.

Users can customize individual themes by selecting the specific Theme > Change allowing users to change the contact information used for that particular theme and presented to the guests - names, phone numbers, contact information, logos, etc. Be sure to Save your changes.

Change Theme

Below the contact settings is the Email section and users can click on Change to customize Headers and Footers that are applied to all guest facing emails. Be sure to Save your changes.

Change Email Header and Footer

Each of these works exactly the same way: it is the standard rich-text editor used throughout OwnerRez.

Further down in the Forms section, users can click on Change to customize all guest facing forms, such as quote acceptance/checkout, payments, security deposits, sign renter agreement, etc. Be sure to Save your changes.

Change Header and Footer

In the Legal Agreements section, users can click on Change to customize the Header and Footer applied to legal agreements/renter agreements, and (if you have the Property Management premium feature turned on) Owner Statements. Be sure to Save your changes.

Change Header and Footer

Once you have entered information in a Header or Footer block, it will automatically be placed at the top or bottom of that type of communication display, as appropriate.

Theming templates

Make sure to paste the HTML Code in the HTML Section - NOT in the body of the document. Use the "< >" button in the editing menu to go to the HTML page.

Templates:

Template 1 (Logo, Email, Phone, Website, Facebook)

Template 2 (Logo, Email, Phone, Website, Facebook, Instagram)

Template 1 (Logo, Email, Phone, Website, Facebook):

Under the Email section, click the Change button on the Footer and set the HTML source.
