Dynamics CRM 2013 – Change navigation area icon

Image Size: 32×32 (By the looks of it – I did 24×24 to test, as below, but is a bit smaller, so 32×32 seems logical)
Image type: PNG-

conmgmt
Customise the System
Web Resources
New
Fill out everything
Save (Should look like below)

conmgmt
COPY THE WEB RESOURCE SECTION (/WebResources/….)
Publish everything.

Create Solution with all necessary components / Add new image to existing solution
Export solution (Unmanaged)
Open ‘Customizations.xml’ in your favourite NotePad++ or NotePad (Hi Microsoft <3))
Look for the AREA you wish to modify

conmgmt

 

Add: “Icon=”/WebResources/new_ConfigMgmt24x24” to the AREA. (Your copied section from above)
Save file
Copy file BACK INTO the exported solution file (Overwrite)
Reupload solution file into CRM (Overwrite)
Publish solution

Should now have a lovely modified area icon 🙂

NOTE: Entity Icons (e.g. Accounts etc are specified directly in the customisation area and just require the images and a publish, nothing fancy)
