A tip to make lookups in Creatio more interesting, which can help engage users more. Using emoticons in Lookups. I recently had a request to create a “rating” lookup with choices like 1-5. Sounds boring and seeing a “2” on a page doesn’t give a quick visual of what that really means. So, instead, I used star emoticons for the lookup choices. It looked like this:
And with a value selected:
This is an easy trick to make a field better express visually what the value means. Also, it looks nice in section or detail lists as well:
And can even be easily used in filters:
Of course, you can also easily use in processes if needed:
Best of all, it takes no effort at all to implement. The end result is a more appealing field that users will more likely interact with.
Keep in mind, that emoticons might look different depending on the OS you’re using. In my screenshots I am using a Mac, on Windows this might appear different using the Window’s unicode keysets.
