To add an image on an activity button, you must provide the name of the image. For a list of images and their names, see Activity Button Image Library.


You cannot set up an image on the page links of an activity button. All page links in the navigation pane use a default image that cannot be changed.

You set up activity buttons the page that is used as the Role Center. To complete this procedure, you must have the name or ID of the Role Center page.

To set up image on an activity button

  1. In the Classic client, on the Tools menu, click Object Designer.

  2. In Object Designer, click Page, select the Role Center page, and then click Design.

  3. In Page Designer, select a blank row.

    You can find a blank row at the bottom of Page Designer. A blank rows gives you access to Action Designer for the page object instead of a single element.

  4. On the View menu, click Actions.

  5. In Action Designer, locate the action that has the Type set to ActionContainer and the SubType set to ActivityButtons.

    This defines the activity button container.

  6. Select the ActionGroup row for the activity button on which you want the image. Activity buttons are defined by the actions that have the Type set to ActionGroup.

  7. On the View menu, click Properties.

  8. In the Properties window, in the Value field for the Image property, type the name of the image that is found in the activity button image library. For more information, see Activity Button Image Library.


If the RoleTailored client is currently open, you will not see your changes until you close and restart.
