The module provides the possibility to devide the application into brands.
By default, one main brand which is the default brand at the same time is set during the system installation. Brands’ functionalities provide the possibility to define own color settings for the whole application, default composition of e-mail templates (header, style, footer), URL, date and language settings. Dividing the application into areas is a superior function in relation to brands. Area is a level of the system’s operation, which means that different groups of users may have different settings of the same brands. For instance, the users at the redactors level may have different color settings, footer and heading for outgoing e-mails, whereas the administrators level may have different settings of the same brand. Users’ and UI components settings are related to the brand.
This means that a group of users e.g. redactors may have different resource access settings in one brand, in other brand these settings may be different. Thus, ui components settings (e.g. location) in one brand may be different in another.
