A Custom Banner Section gives you space on the Homepage to share linked resources with your learners. A customer banner section can be used to connect learners to Help/FAQs, internal resources, or external content - it's up to you.
To create a custom banner section, you'll need:
- A Name for the banner section (i.e. Featured Resources)
- Any Group restrictions (i.e. Customers, Clients) - if needed.
- An image for each card included in the banner section (i.e. icon, graphic)
- URLs of linked web resources (i.e. https://helpdesk.boosted.com)
This article covers adding a custom banner section to your Home Layout, adding Banner Images and information, and configuring banner images within a section.
