    Hi Catherine,

    Thanks for posting in the Community! Links that are related to Clever-connected apps can be associated with site-specific icons. For example, to get the TumbleBooks icon, a teacher should choose "TumbleBooks" on the right hand side of the page after clicking to add a resource.

    After clicking “Next,” the TumbleBooks icon will be the first option.

     


    We’ve heard a lot of requests for the ability to further customize icons. While it’s not something the team is working on right now, it’s definitely something we’ll think about adding this year!

    Please let us know how else we can help.

    Best,

    Okay, maybe TumbleBooks was not the best example. But for a website that is not in your existing icons, right now all we can choose one the four that are available. So in order to give the child a more recognizable icon, for an item that is not in your database it would be great to be able to upload our own icons. A better example might be Global Oneness project. I am pretty sure you don't have that in there but many of our teachers use that as a social studies resource.

    Yes, I am linking to my own class web pages, so all four of my sections have the same icon. This could be confusing for middle schoolers, especially my 6th graders who are not used to their lessons being online. It would be a great help if I could upload my own icons.

    I agree! To make the best use of this wonderful, easy to use teacher page, PLEASE either add more icons, or add a feature to allow us to import our own custom jpeg or png file to be used as an icon. My second graders are going to be very confused when they keep seeing the same icon for several different sites that do not have ready-made icons in your library. 

    I haven't explored the site enough yet to find out if/how to upload a PowerPoint presentation that I've made. Is it possible?

    I agree with the above.  I would love to have the ability to create a custom icon, but if that can't happen, could we get more icon choices?  For instance.  I am a music teacher, but there are no arts based icons for me to choose from.  Right now, my Little Kids Rock website is linked with the books icon...

    Hi Everyone,

    Thanks for the amazing feedback here! And good news: you can now upload your own icons when adding links. 

    As always, keep the feedback coming! Our best ideas come from you all :)

    Hello,

    I am glad that the upload icon option has been provided for adding new resources.  Can the same be done for the Teacher pages so that students can easily differentiate between classes?

    Thanks!

    Hi Everyone, 

    Teacher pages now support custom icons! Go to edit your teacher page and click the existing icon to upload a new one.

    While the upload icon link is there, I can't seem to upload any images from my computer?  None of them come up available to save?
