Customizing App Icons

We provide icon customisation areas that allow you to choose from 5 built-in icon sets as well as the ability to replace icons with your own custom images.
This can be done at two levels.

The App Setup -> Customize Icons page provides the option to override this brand default at an organisation level.

So for example, you could have environments with slightly different icons, where they override selected icons from the brand default as needed.

If you are using App as a Service (i.e. you have your own branded apps), then you can use the Branding Center to define a "brand level" icon set.
This becomes your default icon set for any organisation account that is set up under your brand in our system.

So if you use our Enterprise Toolkit, then all environment accounts will default to using the icons as defined in the Branding Center.
Similarly if you are a Vendor, then all client accounts will be created using your Branding Center defaults.

There is no additional charge for changing icons in the Branding Center or in App Setup.

Changes to icons will automatically download to the device when it next synchronises and display as such.

Creating Icon Boards for Custom Navigation

We’ve also added support for displaying small circular “badges” next to icons on the app start screen as well as on Icon Board screen types.  

These badges would generally be used to display a number as one would typically see in IOS apps.

The Icon Board screen can also be customised as follows:

  • Icons can be coloured
  • Icons can be hidden via a Visibility formula
  • Icons can display badges (which have their own Visibility and other customisation options)
  • “Automatically Generate Icons” option allows you to specify that the app should generate the icons based on what the user has access to. This makes it easy to provide your own custom start screen with dynamic icons.
