Try this as a low tech solution.

Get your logo in a jpg or jpeg or probably png format and store it in a table in a file attachment field where the app is open to everoye on the internet.  I suggest making a dedicated app for this unless you already have an app which is open to everyone on the internet.

Click the file atatchment and it should open up in a web browser with a long ugly URL like this


h t t p s://mycompany.quickbase.com/up/xxxxx/g/rt/eh/va/Division9LogoSmall.jpg


(the https will not have spaces

Then right on the form make a text element and make text like this

<img src = h t t p s://mycompany.quickbase.com/up/xxxxx/g/rt/eh/va/Division9LogoSmall.jpg " width= "200">  

Note that the quote look unbalanced (there are three of them, and that exact spacing matters.  Play with the 200 until you get the size you like.

I just tried this out and the logo shows up in the form just fine, however when I go to email this record out, the logo does not get displayed.  Any ideas?
Right, so if you have the logo hosted on your app which requires a password and then the email will not be able to display the photo.

So what we all do is we create a public application called Logos , since there's nothing secret there, make that open to everybody on the Internet and store all your logos there.

<img src = https://olivermah-3616.quickbase.com/up/bmsqz6i3k/g/rb/eg/va/ics_logo.jpg " width="200">
Try this:

"<img src='https://olivermah-3616.quickbase.com/up/bmsqz6i3k/g/rb/eg/va/ics_logo.jpg' width=\"200\">"
Thanks,

Hi, I tried this method and it worked! But the logo ended up being positioned too far towards the right.
Is there anyway I can correct the position of the logo with the text element?
