What are dash tiles?

These are the coloured tiles that will appear on your dash, they are designed to categorise all of your documents and links making them easy to find. You can have parent article categories, web links and news tiles on the dash.

Article tiles are where your articles will be kept, they are the parent article categories, for example policies, procedures, how to guides, products, company information etc. Web link tiles will link out to external pages for example your business website. The news tile is where all of your latest news will be kept, you can only have one of these tiles, this will be automated from the news items that you post.
