  • Keywords: Adding these will help you locate your custom icon later in a search. Use spaces to separate multiple keywords. Note this is a REQUIRED field.
  • Sharing: Use the toggle option to adjust your icon sharing settings. You can choose to have this icon available to everyone in your organization, or to have it available to you only.
