Collaboration Manager 365 supports BindTuning themes

The Collaboration Manager 365 (CM365) supports now the provisioning of BindTuning themes. You can easily activate and configure your BindTuning theme in our SharePoint template. Finally, you just have to save the template. Now your template includes the BindTuning theme and you can create workspaces from it!

Let me show you how to do that:

1. Activate the BindTuning theme in the Solution Gallery of your CM365 template.

Activate BindTuning theme

2. Configure the settings for the BindTuning theme.

Navigate to the BindTuning settings page and configure your BindTuning theme.

Navigate to BindTuning settings page.

In this example, I configured tokens that will be added to the page footer.

3. Save the template.

Navigate to the Template list and save the template.

4. Create workspaces based on your CM365 template.

Go to the Workspaces list and create a new list item based on your template which contains the BindTuning theme.

As you can see, the Collaboration Manager 365 has imported your BindTuning theme with all settings.
