Managing the Featured Tiles

You must be logged in and have Leader or Moderator access rights to the community. It's simplest to open multiple browser tabs for your community: start with the home page in one tab so you can see your Featured Tiles. The Tiles will be either blank or have generic icons.

Example of Featured Tiles generic icons

In a second tab, open Site Contents by clicking the Gear at the top right and choosing Site Contents from the context menu.

Click the Gear and choose Site Contents

Then open the folder called Featured Tiles in one tab and the folder called Site Assets in another.

Open Featured Tiles in one browser and Site Assets in another.

On the Site Assets page, click the + new document link at the top to add the new graphics to be used for your Featured Tiles (choose images appropriate for the Tile titles). After adding them all, leave that tab open but move to the Featured Tiles tab to work.

Add graphics to Site Assets by clicking + new document.

On the Featured Tiles page, click the List tab and choose All Promoted Links from the Manage Views > Current View context menu.

Choose All Promoted Links from the Manage Views section.

You're now viewing the Tiles in "list" mode. Click the ellipsis to the right of the Tile title and choose to Edit Item.

Click the ellipsis and choose to Edit Item.

Go to the Site Assets browser tab, right-click on the image title that corresponds to the Tile, and choose to Copy Link Address.

Right-click on the image file title and choose to Copy Link Address.

Return to the Featured Tiles browser tab and paste the image link address into the Background Image Location field. You can choose to test the image, if you wish. Then click Save. (NOTE: You can also change the Title, the Description, and/or the associated page hyperlink, i.e., “Link Location”, from this same edit window.)

Paste the image link address into the Background Image Location field; edit other fields as needed; click Save.

Now you can return to your first browser tab (the home page) and refresh your screen to view your new Tile image. Continue editing the Tiles until you’ve replaced all desired images.

Refresh your home page screen to view your new Tile images or other changes.
