Sections give you the power to customize your workplace experience:

  • Group Pages: Sections allow you to group similarly themed pages for easy access within your workplace app.  For example, a COVID-19 resources section can be used to hold all related pages.

Displaying Content in a Section 

  • Section Content List: This Content Block allows you to display a list of all the content within a Section.

  • Manage Sections: This area in the Admin View lets you create and manage the Sections in your channel. There is no limit to the number of sections you can have active, so feel free to organize your pages into clear, concise, commonly themed sections.
