Creating themes is simple and does not require any pre-requisites. However, there are a few things to consider to ensure that you build the best theme; you need to have the following:

  1. Your Logo (preferably an image on transparent background).

  2. Your HEX color values.

  3. Themes must be created before your event.

Building Your Theme

From your dashboard, click on your name > Themes.

Click on Create New Theme to open up the theme setup page.


  • Theme name is the name that appears in your settings, used to identify themes internally.

  • Brand Name is the name that appears instead of MeetingPulse in your meeting. It will show on the top of the tab next to the meeting name.


  • Primary color, primary font color, and Background color should have sufficient contrast to ensure readability (dark font on a light background or vice versa). Similarly, the Secondary Background Color and Secondary Font Color should be contrasting.

  • The Primary color is used as the background on buttons and the icons on the navbar. (E.g. the background of the "Next" button in Polls.)

  • The Primary font color is used on the text of the buttons. (E.g. the text of the "Next" button in Polls.)

  • The Background color is used for the background of most screens, including the bottom navbar.

  • The Font color is used when text appears directly on the background. (E.g. The text of submitted questions.)

  • Generally, you want the Primary color to contrast with the background color. So, if the background color is white, you want a dark font color, a bold/dark primary color, and a white/light primary font color. Often the background color is the same as the primary font color.

  • The Secondary background color is used on top of the background color. (E.g. the text entry field for Q&A and the background of items in Materials.)

  • The Secondary font color is used for the text in areas where the Secondary background color is used. (E.g. "Write your question here."

  • The Accent color is used in some key areas, such as the checkmark when a poll answer has been submitted.


Logo should be SVG or .PNG with a transparent background, with a maximum size of 2M (for best results). It should contrast well with the background color.

Custom backgrounds allow you to add different backgrounds to different slides/modules and set different opacity for each slide. These images will be resized depending on the resolution of the attendees' devices; we recommend against text or logos that might appear stretched or cut off. Textures or gradients work best.

Use the Color Palettes to choose a palette for your chards on your broadcast view and reports.

Use Additional Options for Texts to change the text for specific slides like empty poll slides, empty question slides, etc.

Once you're done with your setup, click Save theme.

Note: themes can be edited at any time, so it's recommended to try the themes on your meeting before your actual event and adjust accordingly.

Applying a Theme

To apply a theme to a meeting, from the meeting Settings > Themes and select the theme you want to use.
