SharePoint 2013 – Links get Promoted!
SharePoint 2013 now has links that animate when the user moves the mouse over them:
These are implemented by creating a “Promoted Links” list. You can create your own promoted links list:
- Select Settings + Add an app
- Click the Promoted Links app (which is actually a list template):
- Enter a name for the new list and click Create :
Once the list is created, items can be added to define each of the promoted links:
You can see that the item has a title, a URL for the image, a description showed when the icon is moused over and the target URL. The Prompted List has a “Tiles” view that will display the items in the list using the animated images:
And when moused over the image animates:
Of course, the Tiles view can be displayed in a Web Part that can be included on any ASPX page. So, easy to get a Metro type feel in your applications.
