Quick Tip: Using Emoticons in Creatio Lookups is 🔥

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:
