Platform Name and Logo:

- Primary Colors: Locate options for "Text Primary Color" and "Text Secondary Color." These settings influence the text color throughout your platform. This is the main color of the app, the default is the green color seen throughout the default installation
- Secondary Colors: You will see a secondary color (orange by default) throughout the app. You can change this color here
- Public or Private: Determine whether you want to make your library of resources and content public or restrict access so learners can only view content they are assigned. The "Library" appears on the dashboard page of the learner.
- Select Timezone: Find the "Timezone" or "Timezone Configuration" section. Choose the timezone that corresponds to the region where most of your users are located.
- Confirm and Save: Once you've selected the timezone, save your changes to apply the new setting.
