Updating custom entities icons (Upload a new image for a Custom Entity in CRM)

For all our projects, we are always customizing Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0. To achieve that, we create many custom entities and one of the worst aspect of that heavy customization is to have a lot of custom entities with the same icon. So, it is difficult to identify them just with their icon.

In order to customize further the application, it is a good thing to add different icon to each custom entity.

The standard approach

This approach consists of using the standard feature of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 to update custom entites icons. In the customization view, just click on the menu “More actions” and click on “Update icons…”.

You then need to provide a file for each required icons:

icon in web application (16x16 / gif / less that 10kb)
Shortcut icon in Outlook (32x32 / ico / less than 10kb)
Icon in entity form (66x48 / gif / less than 10kb)
