Create Tile Data Step Configuration

  • Dark
    Light

Overview 

The Create Tile Data step is used in Tile Flows for Pages. This step is different from the Create Tile Return step because it contains no Tile Type Name dropdown list and instead has a series of inputs called Lines. By default, there are five line inputs, but additional line inputs can be configured. This step also gives users more control over the styling of the Tile through the use of the Advanced Styling checkbox option.
