Look & Feel

The menu Look & feel lets you customize the user interface of Xima® Formcycle, such as the logo and the name. You can also modify several links, such as to the terms of service or the imprint.


Settings for the header at the very top of the backend user interface.

The title you enter here is shown to the top left.

You can hide the name FORMCYCLE in the title at the top left.

You can also hide the version number. This may be useful when you do not want your users to learn about the exact version.

Customize the header to the very top of the application:

Title of this application
The title you enter here is shown in large letter to the top left, next to the name FORMCYCLE. When you enter no value, only the name FORMCYCLE is shown. You can use this as a hint for users to quickly distinguish between a test and live environment.
Show logo of this application
When activated, shows the name FORMCYCLE next to the title.
Show version of this application
When activated, shows the current version of the software in small letters belo the title of the application.


Choose a background that is shown on the login page and in the backend

The background is visible on the login page and is also shown as a background in the backend. When you select the first option with the dice symbol , the system randomly chooses a background image each time a users signs in. Select any other option to set the background to that image. Currently we do not support uploading your own background images.


The overall look of the Xima® Formcycle backend may be changed through theming.

Show on start page

If you do not want to show some links, you can disable them. Additionally the client selection can be toggle on or off.

This figure illustrated which links are affected by the various settings.

Configure what should be displayed on the login page for the backend. Several links may be configured to be displayed or hidden. For example, you could hide the link to the terms of service or show no links to the online help.

Client chooser

It is also possible to configure whether or not to display a client chooser on the login page. Keep in mind though, displaying or hiding the client chooser effects the way users login into the system.

Login with client chooser
User login to the system the usual way with their username and password.
Login without client chooser
If only one client is present in the system, users login the usual way with their username and password. Is more than one client present then the login name of a user changes to username@clientname (e.g.: joe@demo).
