How to add tiles to site dashboard?

First, click on the gear icon at the bottom right hand corner of the site dashboard to bring up all the layout options. Select the one that you want to use.

Once you have selected a layout, you can click on the + icon at the bottom right to bring up a list of tiles you can add to your site dashboard. New tiles will appear at the upper left corner automatically. You can drag and drop to rearrange the tiles.

The standard tiles columns allow you to choose the type of tiles you want to include. The content related tiles (Albums, Events, Intranet Files, Page Categories, Pages) contains content you added to the site.

If you want to refer to information outside of your site, you can use the "Links" tile to point to the location of the information.

Standard tiles

Click on the tile you want to add. You have 3 options for each type of content in standard tiles, which are “latest”, “popular”, and “Custom”. You can also customize the label of the tile.

The “Latest” option will show the most recent content in the tile. Enter the maximum number of items to appear in the tile. Please note that the higher the maximum number, the longer the tile. You can also rename the “Latest Pages” to the label you want to use.

The "Popular" option will display the most popular content. The popularity is based on the number of views, likes, and shares.

The "Custom" option allow you to select the specific content you want to appear in the tile. You will need to enter the title (or part of the title) to search for the content, then select the content to add to the tile.

The "HTML" tile allows you to add custom html to the site dashboard. For example, if you want to display a Youtube video on site dashboard, you can use the html tile to add the embed code from Youtube.

Library Tiles

Library tiles are the custom tiles created by your App Managers. The content has already been selected. If you are like to add any of the library tiles to your dashboard, simply click on the tile, then click "Add to Dashboard".
