When widgets are enabled in your community, you can add an Overview page to a place. Overview pages are based on widgets while other pages, such as Activity and custom pages are based on tiles. Please note that tiles provide a better user experience and perform better, especially on mobile devices.
This article provides the procedure for adding the Overview page.
You can have Activity, Overview, and custom pages enabled for your place. The leftmost page in the place navigation menu becomes the landing page of your place.
It is not recommended that you use widgets and Overview pages with widgets in your community. For more information, please see Understanding Pages in Places.
If you use the checkpoint and status functionality for tracking project tasks, you may want to stick with the old-style Overview page rather than updating to the Place Template format. The widgets in the Overview page more effectively support Projects at this time.
For more information about Overview pages, please see Designing Overview Pages for Places.
To add an Overview page in your place::
- Navigate to the landing page for a place.
- Click the Gear icon > Settings, which opens the Edit Group page.
- Click Advanced Options.
- Select the Overview page checkbox.
When widgets are enabled, you can use an Overview page in addition to an Activity page. By default, the Overview page is set as the landing page for the place.
- Click OK.
- Click Save at the bottom of the page.
