Again maybe it is just the way that I use Icons8 and not what others do. But you have the Categories like iOS etc. You have Styles like Outline Filled. These are “grouped” icons that I assume are shown based on a “tag”.
The way I envision a Favorite is actually just “tagging” the Icon to something, like Application1, Application2.
So as I mentioned before I end up with a collection of icons which I have tagged to a purpose (ie, for Application1). Now when I go into that Collection I want to be able to get one of the assets out of it, maybe with an overlay or recolored etc for a different state within the application. Ideally I should be able to pull up the icon do my changes and download it. Ideally with a name of my choosing.
As an example in my app I used the Increase icon as my Reporting icon. So at the moment I have a spreadsheet which has my name “Reports” and then another column which has “Increase Filled” in it. I go to Icons8 I search for Increase Filled, I do what I need and then download it, it downloads a file called icons8-increase-filled.svg, then I rename the file to reports.svg. Initially I wrote an application that would iterate my spreadsheet and batch rename the icons downloaded but overall managing the correlation of what I am using in my application and what Icons8 calls it is a pita.
As I mentioned if we could pull up the Increase Filled icon and tag it to collection “Application1” and name it “Reports”, then we can just pull up the “Application1” collection and it will show everything tagged for that with out names instead of Icon8.
Then for example I go to do a different application or website I could create a new collection Application2 and maybe I use the Increase Filled icon as a Dashboard button, so again it is tagged to Application2 and named “Dashboard” so the same icon is now in 2 collections with different names.
Hope this makes sense. I hate web development (I am a winforms man so I give massive kudos for the design interface etc as the site works great), if it is easy enough I would like to see a workflow whereby you just drag it to my collection, and then a popup comes up asking for the name with the Textbox prefilled with Icons8 name to start with, so someone can just hit enter and keep going or they can customise the name.
Just my 2 cents
