A hero image is typically placed front and center on a Jive homepage. Given that it's the first visual a user encounters, it often highlights the most important or timely content in the community (or perhaps a Space).
The Hero Tile has one job: connect visitors to top content. So, we sweat the details on this one. First, the Hero Tile can display up to three linked images or "calls to action" in a wide column. Alternatively, you can choose actionable links paired with icons. This tile also shows really well in a narrow column and on mobile.
A published Hero Tile can look quite simple. But it's sophisticated in the sense that you can use the config panel to choose from a number of layouts and looks. For example, choose one beautiful image with a button or intro text with action links or an image with buttons side by side with action links.
