Customize Appearance Settings

This feature is available to all users.

Only Pro and Business users can upload a custom background image.

You can personalize the appearance of your MeisterTask Dashboard and Projects by customizing backgrounds, changing section sizes and adjusting how much information is displayed in task tiles.

Adjusting for Smaller and Larger Screens
