Create clickable Icon in SharePoint Lists

Problem Description:

Sometimes design is very important and therefore a usual link may not be enough. So I searched for a way to create a column in SharePoint and add a clickable icon.


  1. upload a icon picture to your site
  2. create a new column of type “Multiple lines of text”;
    ensure you have “Enhance rich text…” selected and set the “Number of lines for editing to 1
  3. now you can add usual links to that column or do it – like in my case – automatically by a workflow on item created event.
    <a href=” &Source=/sites/yoursite”><img border=”0″ alt=”Info” src=”/sites/yoursite/library/info.png”>
  4. enjoy!
