Web pages can be added to the Dashboard and interacted with in a URL tile.

To add a URL tile to a Dashboard, review the Dashboard Designer article. Tiles can be added from the New Tile menu.

Controls for building and interacting with the URL tile are contained in the Tile Properties Pane on the right side of the screen. Click on the URL tile to select it and the Tile Properties Pane will fill with the properties for the selected tile.

Content

The Content tab for URL tiles allows the URL in the tile to be changed. Enter the fully qualified web address (e.g. "http://www.mycompany.com") and then click Apply to update the tile.

Parameters can be used in the web address for a URL tile.

Style

The Style tab for URL tiles contains the Tile section. The Background and Border section is where tile appearance can be changed. The settings here override the Canvas Format defaults.

  • Check Background to set a background color for the tile. Click Color to open the color selector and choose a background color. Unchecking the Background checkbox makes the tile transparent.

  • Check Tile Header to set a background color for the tile's header. Click Color to open the color selector and choose a background color. Unchecking the Tile Header checkbox makes the header background transparent.

  • Check Shadow to show a slight shadow effect around the tile.

  • Check Border to apply a border to the tile.

    • Check Customize Border to set the properties of each of the four tile borders individually. Leave unchecked to have the border properties applied equally to the four sides.

    • Click Color to open the color selector and choose a border color.

    • Width sets the border width in pixels.

    • Round sets the roundness of the corners.
