Customizing Entity Icons for Unified Interface – Dynamics 365 v9

With D365 v9 release, we have the new Unified Interface.

Observation:

When I started working with it, I observed that I cannot see the entity icons in the navigation even though I had uploaded but 16*16 and 32*32 icons for the entity.

I was also able to see the Entity icons in the web interface for the entity but not in the Unified Interface.

Solution:

In v9, we now have to specify the Icon for Unified interface separately. It is available in the Update Icons popup as a separate tab,

We have to update the icon in this area. The image size should be 16 *16, and it suggests that we should use SVG image for better results. I tried SVG and PNG images both, and both are working properly in the unified interface.

Suggestion in the Update icons section for Unified Interface:

“Select icons to use in the Web Client and Unified Interface. For best results, use a scalable vector graphic (.svg) icon with transparency enabled.”

Screenshots below for steps to update icons for Entity in the Unified Interface.
