Acumatica Tips: How to Modify the icons of Acumatica Tiles?

This blog explains how users can modify the icons of the Tiles of Acumatica with lesser coding to make them more unique and presentable.

Users can either create their custom SVG icons or download them and use them for tiles instead of the default ones.

Use case: Let us assume that the user wants to modify the tile icon for the New Stock Item Tile in the Inventory Workspace of Acumatica (refer to screenshot 1).

To modify the Workspace icons, follow the below-mentioned steps:

  1. Download/create an SVG icon. 
  1. Copy this SVG file to [instance_name]/Content/svg_icons folder (screenshot 2)-

  1. Open this file in Visual Studio. 
  1. After you open it, the file will contain the below code. The following code is an example of the SVG file we downloaded in this blog- screenshot 3-

  1. Now enter the below-mentioned code surrounding the <path> tag. 
<symbol id= “new stock”> 
<path d= “…”>         //this tag is already present 

  1. id: represents the ID of the icon. 
    viewBox: represents the coordinates of the icon. The dimensions defined in viewBox should be for a square layout of the icon.  Since the viewBox attribute is already present in the code, there isn’t any requirement to add a new one. You can even remove the viewBox attribute from the <svg> tag and put it in the <symbol> tag. If there are multiple icons in one svg file, make sure the correct values have been specified for each. 
  1. And hence, save the file- screenshot 4.
