Changing metric icons

When you create metrics they’re represented by an icon that reflects the source of their data, for example, a Google Analytics 4 logo for Google Analytics 4 metrics or an uploaded file icon for data that comes from local spreadsheets. (See example below.)

You can customize metric icons to provide more context, align similar metrics, or change the look and feel of your metrics wherever they display in PowerMetrics (for example, in your list of metrics, in Explorer, on a metric homepage, or in a dashboard). Depending on where in the UI you’re applying custom icons, you can modify them for individual or multiple metrics.

Note: This article refers to accounts that use data feeds. If your account uses data sources, go here for metric editing instructions.

To change the icon for a single metric (from the metric’s homepage):

  1. On the Metric List page, select a metric to open it.
  2. Click the Edit button.
  3. Either click the icon beside the name of the metric in the title bar or click the About tab in the right-side panel and, under Metric image, click Edit image. (See below.)

  4. In the Edit metric image dialog:
    • If you have an image you want to use for the metric icon, click Upload image. Set the image size as desired, and click Apply.
      Note: If you apply an uploaded image and, later, upload and apply a different image, the first image will be deleted.
    • If you want to use a pre-built icon, select one from the Icon library. Optionally, select an icon colour, background colour, and background shape.
  5. Click Apply.
  6. Click Save metric.

To change icons for one or more metrics (from your list of metrics):

  1. In the left navigation sidebar, click Metrics, to open your Metric List page.
  2. Click the checkbox beside the metric(s) for which you want to change the icon.
    Note: You can select multiple metrics if you want them all to use the same, new icon.
  3. In the upper-left corner, click the 3-dot menu and select Edit metric image.
  4. In the Edit metric image dialog:
    • If you have an image you want to use for the metric icon, click Upload image. Set the image size as desired, and click Apply.
      Note: If you apply an uploaded image and, later, upload and apply a different image, the first image will be deleted.
    • If you want to use a pre-built icon, select one from the Icon library. Optionally, select an icon colour, background colour, and background shape.
  5. Click Apply (for single metrics) or Apply to all metrics (for multiple metrics).
