Home page tiles look great and are very useful.
Order of tiles can be set in Configuration/Main page. That's how it looks like:
What types of tiles are there and what's the difference between them?
There are six types of tiles available:
Tile programs lead to educational programs. They are configured in program settings and if you want to delete them from the home page, you also have to do that in program settings.
View tiles lead to a specific view from anywhere on the platform (besides Requests and Training dates). They are configured in view settings and if you want to delete them from the home page, you also have to do that in view settings. Remember that the view has to be visible to everyone - otherwise you won't be able to create a tile.
Tiles with links lead to a specific link, for example educational material available somewhere outside of the platform. You configure them the same way you configure any other tile - you can choose their color, background, icon etc.
Profile tile shows information about the user - their name, profile photo, rank and the amount of points they have to gain to move to the higher rank.
Communication tiles allow you to put banners on the home page. Banners can have different sizes and different content. When you create them (Communication/Banners), you decide in which communication tile they will be presented.
Upcoming trainings tile shows information about new dates for trainings that are assigned to user.
What can I set?
You can add and name a section
Section is a group of tiles. Sections here are named "Welcome on board!" and "What's up on Deck?".
You can change the order of tiles and move them between sections
All you have to do is move an element on a list.
In tile settings you can choose if the tile will be visible to everyone or just to specific groups of users.
You can add tiles with links, profile tile, communication tiles and upcoming trainings tile.
