    From a non-developers point of view, I prefer using a calculated option set with emojis to achieve the same thing. One of the limitations to that is of course that your are limited to the available emojis instead of using custom icons.

    And you also need to make sure, that you use a browser that displays the emojis properly 🙂

    That's a helpful video. Do you know if there's a way to add these custom icons to the calendar view of opportunities? My opportunities have a "Type" field, and changing the icon from the default icon would be a great tool!

    Update on my question above. It looks like the web resource function does not run when the list is viewed as the Calendar Control. It runs on the Read Only view.

    In the Read Only view, the parameter that goes through is "rowData". Does anyone know if there is an equivalent for the Calendar Control event items?

    This is a very powerful feature! Thanks for the great video.

    Just to add to this: In this example the icon and the field value (On Track, Warning, etc) are basically telling you the same thing. Great for quick visual identification, but I like to add, that this is even more powerful if you add it to - let's say - a date field.

    We have it added to a due date field for Cases, and compare that date to today's date.
    When the due date is more than 2 days out, a green bullet shows,
    When the due date is less than 2 days out, a yellow bullet shows,
    When the due date is passed, a red bullet shows.

    That way, you have both the actual due date, and the urgency of your Case in 1 column. And by sorting on Date - Descending you have all your red bullets in the top of your view.

    Finally: you can even build IF statements depending on other fields in the same view. For example: Do not show a bullet at all when the Status = Closed.

    Great feature!
