Create Layout Blocks

Layout blocks are used to add content or actions to app tiles. It determines the tile header and icon, and what happens when the tile is tapped. For example, the tile can open an app screen such as a catalog, form, or punch card. Or it can open a pop-up message, QR scanner, call the business, etc.


Preset Layout Blocks

To make things easier, we've created some preset layout blocks for you. The following presets don't need to be created and can be added directly to app tiles.
