You can change the icons representing Components to custom images. Some users have gone so far as to document project team members and use profile pictures instead of icons.

Changing All Components of a Component Type:

Add images to document archive.

First, open the document archive by clicking the archive button at the top-right of Ardoq:

Ardoq document archive

You can either drag and drop the images directly into the document archive or click upload ( 2 ).

Ardoq document archive add images

Edit model

In the model window, you can edit the current model you are using. Simply select “Manage component types and model” from the main menu:

Ardoq manage component types and model

Choose the component you want to change, and choose from previously uploaded images. In the example below, we change the application component to show an Image instead of the Icon previously chosen. 

After selecting the Image, just exit the screen as it autosaves.

Ardoq application workspace

All your components of that type will now be updated!

Changing a single component icon

If you would like to edit a single component, right-click the component and select “Edit Style”:

Ardoq edit style

Select Image

Now simply select your uploaded image and click “Change” to save the change.

Ardoq select image
