  • When customizing the instance theme colors, one may find that the Employee Profile dropdown menu’s text is light colored on top of a light colored background (such as shown below), or dark text on a dark background. How can this be adjusted?



  • SuccessFactors application BizX Platform
  • SuccessFactors Theme Manager


  1. In Admin Tools > Company Settings > Theme Manager,  edit the custom theme.

  2.  Go to Fine Tune > Placemat > Background Type > choose whether you are using a dark or light background. Choosing Dark will render the text to be white for contrast, and Light will make the text color black.
