Hello JiveMinds,


We ,at ThoughtWorks, have created the custom view tiles and like to share the learnings/implementations of the same.


We have used Tiles feature of the Jive to make sure the information is shared in an intuitive graphical way.


This particular tile is called 'Featured Items with Images'. The intent behind designing this tile is to share the important links in graphical blocks with intuitive background images.


More on the this tile:



1. Add items with according background images to make more intuitive info out of it.
