A VisualIndicator helps users quickly locate an essential or distinct record within the list of similar records. Graphics are eye-catching and allow users to understand at first glance as compared to text. Users can easily differentiate between records with images instead of text fields.
Salesforce has standard visual indicators available that can be displayed through a simple formula field, but there is no need to add images to the files, documents, or static resources anymore.
We can use Emojis instead of using images as VisualIndicators!
