The Channels Library is a shared repository of channels that can be used by all workspace contributors in all their journey maps and personas within the workspace.

Note: This functionality is available only in the Pro workspaces, as it’s part of Team Library.

There are two ways you can set up the Channels Library for your team:

  • By adjusting the default icon set to your needs;

  • By uploading custom icons.

How to adjust the default set

To manage UXPressia’s default icons,

  • Open the Channels section.

  • Make sure default UXPressia channels are chosen.

  • Now you can hide specific icon sets, categories, or individual icons:

  • If you want, you can rename categories or specific icons. It comes in handy if you want, for instance, to use your internal vocabulary for naming channels instead of the default one or if English names don’t work for you and you want to have all channels in a different language without renaming them each time you use them.

Note: When saving updated titles, you can either apply the new naming to all maps and personas where the icons were used or start using them in the next map or personas you will create.

How to upload and use custom icons

To start using custom icons in your maps, select the Custom Channels option.

Then upload custom icons you want to use, either one by one or in a *zip archive.

Note: Use the SVG format to ensure the highest quality.

Once you save custom icons, they will appear on the icon selection popup.

Note: You can use only one icon set a time: the default or a custom one.
