As a Solution builder
I want the ability to override the icon shown for an element of a type with an image or icon defined on the element
So That i can create more modern and visually appealing solutions
For instance. For the Persons type i would have a generic overall Person icon, which could for instance be something like this, however ideally i would like to show an actual photo of that given person whenever possible, and in whichever graph, matrix og diagram i'm including them in.
The same logic applies to vendors, software, systems, countries, and so forth where i might want to display a corporate logo, icon, flag or similar.
Benefits rather than seeming like generic one size fits all, the inclusion of familiar icons and faces helps to personalize the solution. Moreover it can reduce or eliminate possible confusion arising from selecting from large lists of similar sounding persons, firms or systems, and it can enable the users to get a much quicker overview and insights into their data. It can also help to provide a relatively simple proxy for data quality or data completeness.
Acceptance Criteria some form of icon field on an element which by default overrides the icon defined on the type whenever the element type symbol is displayed. And a way to set the element icon manually using MBA as well as in synchronizers.
