It also changes the background color for the Icon that will appear when the Folder is added to My Apps. In the Color Picker, a pre-set color can be selected or the Advanced section can be expanded to reveal additional color options.

Note on 7.8 Update
Note that as v.7.8+, Icons are automatically applied to each Folder in the Decisions Studio. The default Icon for each Folder is dependent upon the Folder Type of the Folder it is applied to.

Additionally, the following Default Folders have new Icons applied to them (see the screenshot below list to see the updated icons):

  • Getting Started 
  • Inbox
  • My Apps
  • System 


If desired, this Icon can still be altered, personalized, or removed via the same Look and Feel Settings.
