Updating Icons Part 1 - The Basics

So after yesterday's post, somebody asked how to update an Icon in CRM. Since it is a little hidden, here are some step by steps on how to do it.

1. Select / Settings / Customizations/ Customize Entities

2. Select the Entity and select More Actions and the click Update Icons. Click browse to browse to where your icons are located. Select your Icon and click Open,

You should now have a screen that looks like this.

Click Ok.

Publish your customizations. You should now have your custom icon with a new Icon that doesn't look as lame. :-)

Now the cool thing about this, once you add the icon and you export your XML, the icon's are embedded in your XML file, so they will go with the customizations. Which you can read more about here.
