vCO Custom Workflow Icons
While at VMworld Europe 2014 I noticed in some of the slides in a vCO session that the presenter was using some icons for workflows that did not appear to be standard. I was quite curious how to do this, but couldn’t find much information about it until I stumbled on the below training video.
If you don’t want to watch the video, here’s how to do it.
- Get your images into vCO
Navigate to the Resources tab and you will probably want to create a folder to store them in.
Then Import Resources
Fill up the folder with the rest of the icons that you need.
- Update the Workflows with the Custom Icon
Navigate to the workflow you wish to set a Custom Icon for and edit it. On the General tab select the button for the Workflow icon.
The dialogue box will let you select from within Resources with a handy search box to find what you need:
The workflow is updated with the custom icon.
OK, you can’t really see much of a benefit here. The difference appears when you embed your custom icon workflows into a parent workflow, which can now look something like this:
Pretty cool I think; I could have so much fun with this :-)
