Although the Branding page is mainly for adding your company colors and logos, you can also edit the rank icons that appear in the Web Office Visual Tree.

What Are Visual Tree Icons?

Upload Web Office Visual Tree Rank and Associate Type icons.

You can upload SVG icons for each Rank and Associate Type. These icons will replace the generic profile shadow image in the Visual Tree for all Tree members.

If there are no icons uploaded for a certain Rank, it will default to the Visual Tree Associate Type icons.

Creating Your Own SVG Icons

The Visual Tree uses SVGs for icons and can be a little tricky to create as they combine visual designing and coding.

Programs that can create SVGs:

In Adobe Illustrator

  • Use simple shapes to create your icons.

  • Convert all text to paths (Type > Create Outlines (SHIFT+CTRL+O)

  • If you are using filters, use the SVG Filters found on the Effects menu.

  • Simplify your paths as the last step before saving (Object > Path > Simplify…).

  • Use unique naming for your layers and artboards; this is important to ensure the styles do not override each other on the tree.

  • When saving as an SVG, use the Presentation Attributes on your Advanced CSS Properties.
