We have lots of options for customising your front cover!

Choosing a Front Cover Layout

Head to the 'Front Cover' menu and then select 'Layout' to choose the layout of your front cover.

You'll see the different options you have for the look and feel of your front cover.

Logo & Cover Text

This is where you can select a logo, title, and subtitle to give more context to your reports.

Setting a Front Cover Image

There's three options:

  1. Use our montage view (we'll show small thumbnails of your clips in a collage as the front cover image).

  2. Upload your own front cover image manually (higher quality images are best).

  3. You can select no cover image - it'll just display the title and client logo on a white background.

Selecting the Clips for your Montage

When you use the montage, you can decide how the clips are selected:

  • Random Selection: Clips will be selected randomly from your coverage.

  • First items in book: Clips will be selected in order from the first items in the book.

  • Highlights: Clips will be selected from your highlights, starting with the first highlighted clip.

  • Recently published items: The clips with the most recent published date will be used.

  • Recently added items: The clips added most recently to the book will be used.

  • Items in a section: The clips will be selected from a specific section of your choice

Using a Custom Image as your Front Cover

Setting a Background Colour

You can select a background colour for you front cover, to personalise the branding further. You have the option to choose from one of our selection or add in your own.

Hide the Front Cover Page

The final option in the front cover menu is to hide the front cover page from the report. Just click on the option to hide or unhide this page.

How to add an organisation logo

Click on the Book Overview menu, and click on the banner logo option. From here you can upload a logo (it will be visible in the top left corner of your reports).

Here's a preview of the shared online report with the logo added.

Changing the accent colours

You can add a custom set of highlight colours and accents to keep your reports on brand.

From the Book Overview menu, click on the accent colour option. From here you can manually select a colour, or type in your Pantone reference to exactly match (it'll default to our own CoverageBook colours if you don't want to change this).

Once set, you'll now see some subtle colour changes to our front cover montage and default labels. here's an example of the metrics summary page:
