You can replace the icons representing Components with custom images.
The use of images as icons enhances engagement by making your content visually appealing, engaging, and easy to understand.
Images play an important role in your storytelling
Visual images convey information in a memorable and recognizable way
Pro Tip: In Ardoq, we strongly recommend modeling people as distinct components, not just fields - such as names or email addresses - on another component type. Wouldn't it be better to use the profile picture of the person instead of the icon? Our Azure Active Directory People Integration allows you to import profile pictures directly from Azure Active Directory.

Changing All Components of a Component Type:
Adding images to the document archive is easy. At the top-right of Ardoq, click the archive button to open the document archive:
Drag and drop images directly into the document archive or upload them
Editing your model is the next step. By using the model window, you can make changes to the current model. From the main menu, select "Manage component types and models":
Choose an image from the previously uploaded ones for the component you want to change. As shown in the following example, we change the application component to show an Image rather than an icon.
Simply exit the screen after selecting the image, as it will autosave.
Now all your components of that type will be updated!
Changing a single component icon
You can edit a single component by right-clicking it and selecting “Edit Style ”:
Simply select your uploaded image and click "Change" to save it.
