If for some legislations reasons or because some of your users might not have access to those server you might want to host those fonts on your Deskpro server instead.

If you only have one brand enabled or if you want this across all you brands :

Add the following line to config/advanced/config.settings.php file:

$SETTINGS['portal.tickets_disable_google_fonts'] = '1';

If you only want to set this setting for a single brand or you prefer to use the database:

INSERT INTO settings_brand (name, brand_id, value) VALUES ('portal.disable_google_fonts', 1, '1');

If you use the cloud version of Deskpro or you don’t have an easy access to the server (you will have to do this for each of your brands):

The open the following template: Internal / head-include.html

<style>
    @font-face {
        font-family: SpaceGrotesk;
        src: url("downloadurl") format("truetype");
    }
</style>
