Hi Murali,

I hope all is well,

We have a few areas in which we can restyle Yellowfin. I would highly recommend looking at the below links to assist with this:

Overall Restyling | Report Restyling

If you have any further questions relating to this, please do not hesitate to contact me, I will be more than happy to assist where I can. I look forward to your reply.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the response.

I am not still clear how can we add custom widgets/icons other than default icon list.

For example : Lets say I need a widget/icon in designing report other the below icons. Because my company has some standard icons specific to contact center. I need to use them as per their requirements. So what type of format/file should we need to add them in yellowfin libraries.

Please guide through the steps to add those .

Hi Murali,

Thank you for clearing this up. To my knowledge I don't think this is possible, as I believe the icons are hard coded into Yellowfin without them having a location in our installation files... As a work around I would like to suggest the following:

We can upload our specific icons/images that we want through images; jpg,jpeg, png.

  1. Navigate to Administration > Images and Maps
  2. Add an image (icon)6193b92b620013a4de26af0c1454f178
  3. Navigate to the report in question.
  4. Instead of selecting Shape Widgets, select Image Widgets, this will then allow you to add your uploaded image/icon (drag and drop). We can actually manually upload at this point as well.09d1218b0b15d82b9f845724a07be7be
  5. As you can see, we can use these images in a similar way to the icons.dea09acd1314810d6bdb689f872f896c

I hope this helps Murali, if not let me know and I will see what other options we have, although I do believe this is the only way forward at present time. I look forward to your reply.
