Note: Types of Tiles

Please note that not every tile format has all options available surrounding the types of content that can be displayed. All tile types are given the ability to display the following:

Not all tiles have the ability to use the link text or add the content from the main content area. If there is any question around the functionality available to the tiles on your website, please contact our website team for clarrification.
