Change your doc's icon

Note that you must be a Doc Maker in order to change a doc icon.

It's all too easy to get lost in your open tabs and in your bookmarks. Giving your Coda docs their own icons can help you find the right one every time. To set or change your doc’s icon, follow these steps:

  1. In the upper left corner of your doc, click on the icon above the doc title

  2. Choose one of the suggested icons, or use the text bar to search for icons via keywords

    1. Bonus - if you’re on a paid Coda plan, you can even upload your own custom icons to use. Learn more here.

  3. Select the icon you want - and that’s it!
