Content tiles

When adding Content tiles you can choose between a Latest & Popular tile and a Custom tile.

Site tiles

Site managers should only use Site information and Site about tiles once on a site. If they add multiple Information or About tiles, the text in the tiles will just repeat itself. Site managers can use Rich text tiles if multiple text tiles on the Site dashboard are needed.

  • You can use this tile for announcements, reminders, or other important information that you want to display on the Site dashboard. You can enter up to 4000 characters. This tile supports Rich Text.
