Each record type in the 4me service has its own icon (or avatar). These small graphics help users to identify the type of record that they have opened more quickly. Images are processed faster than text because the human brain deciphers them simultaneously, while language is decoded in a linear, sequential manner.
These record icons have recently been redesigned to make them a little easier to recognize. The new version of these icons are similar to their previous version, but considerably more crisp. The example below shows the old and the new icon for request.
Some icons are a little different, though. The most significant change has been made to the symbol for ‘template’. This has become the more widely used paint roller. Below you see the old and the new version of the request template icon.
