At Colibo, we strive to streamline the user experience and to make the intranet more user-friendly. To allow Colibo users to manage their news feed, we have updated the News Page and created a 'Curated News' widget, now available through the system administrator's page.
Setting Up Your Curated News Widget
Through the Curated News widget, administrators can search for any news feed item and have it displayed on the Home and News pages. This widget is not managed by date. The top item will be shown first in both the widget and the News Page, followed by the second and so on. This is to give users more flexibility in how they want the news displayed.
Curated News will be displayed as widget on the home page. On the News Page, items in Curated News will appear before Pinned ones, as the Curated News function is only available to system administrators.
This feature is already added to your intranet! To set up your Curated News widget, select the Widgets icon on the System Administration page. Here you will see a list of the widgets your intranet has and whether or not they are active. Select the Curated News icon to enable or disable the app. Administrators can choose which row the widget will be displayed on, as well as the title, the maximum number of news items shown, and whether or not images and dates will be displayed.
On the Home page, the Curated News widget is presented in three different formats: Compact, Cards, and Feature.
By using the Compact setting, the widget will be displayed in a thin window that can be scrolled through by selecting the arrows located on the upper-right. The Cards setting will give a slightly larger display.
By selecting Feature, the Curated News widget will be fully displayed on the Home page. The maximum number of news items available will be shown.
