Changing color of the icons in the navigation bar


You can now modify the color of the blue buttons (New, Custom Actions, Recent Items, and Favorites) in the left-hand side navigation bar at the organizational level using custom CSS.

The default blue color can be changed to:

  • White
  • Gray
  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Orange
  • Red


To change the color of the navigation bar buttons:

  1. As a System administrator, navigate to Settings > Global Settings.
  2. Paste the following code into the Custom CSS field.

    #nav-static-container a {background-image: url(../../images/icons/nav-s-icons_<color_name>.png);}

    Where, <color-name> is the name of the color you wish to use. Available values include [white | gray | yellow | green | orange | red].

    For example, to change the color of the icons to green, use the following code:

    #nav-static-container a {background-image: url(../../images/icons/nav-s-icons_green.png);}
