Tiles Matrix (cloud)

Version 6

    Some people might be frustrated with a lack of clarity around migrating from widgets to tiles. I certainly was! My problem was that I didn't know what was available where. The documentation online doesn't address layout of these tiles, so i've audited the capabilities to see if the tile works in a small column or large column. The idea is that you can examine your current space, group or project and see what widgets you have and align those widgets to your new catalog of tiles. Yes, these tiles appear in all places: spaces, groups and projects.

     

    I've compiled this list from the information available in 2016.1 (cloud only). It doesn't look at hosted or on-prem versions. Feel free to edit and make better.
