How To Fix Workplace And Resource Center Icons In CRM 2015.1

CRM 2015 Update 1 removed the workplace and Resource Center from the site map.  It also replaced all the existing icons that were still in use.  By default this gives a very poor looking sitemap:


Here is how to update the icons to give a much more polished look:

  1. Create or find the icons that you want to use.  The new CRM Icons are 85x71, so you’ll want to follow that standard for optimal display.  (You can download my icons here.  I made them myself.  Feel free to donate using the Donate button on the right.)
  2. Upload the icons as web resources (The XrmToolBox has a great plugin for this, or you can do it manually).  Record the name you give for each icon.
  3. Download and run the XrmToolBox.
  4. Open the SiteMap Editor plugin, and login to the CRM instance to be updated.
  5. Click the “Load SiteMap” button to load the site map from CRM.
  6. -Optional- Click “Save SiteMap” to make a backup incase the changes made need to be reverted.
  7. Click on the “Area (Workplace)” node and update the Icon path to the path of the appropriate web resource. image
  8. Click Save.
  9. Click on the “Area (ResourceCenter)” node and update the Icon path to the path of the appropriate web resource.
  10. Click Save.
  11. Click “Update SiteMap” to push the changes.
  12. Stop staring at the old nasty blown up 32x32 icons in your SiteMap.
