Tiles Web Part

The Tiles Web Part allows to easily create a compelling homepage or navigation without having to set up a multitude of web parts and/or create custom page layouts. It also includes a collection of specialized tiles to display list items, weather information, Twitter and RSS feeds and videos.
It arranges the tiles in a freely designable responsive grid containing tiles of varying size and functionality.

The Web Part can be used with Sharepoint 2010, Sharepoint 2013 and Sharepoint 2016.
The Tiles Web Part lets you:
  • define the default tile dimension (typically square)
  • define a custom color palette to adhere to your corporate branding
  • CSS styles to customize the look and feel
  • Tile security trimming by Sharepoint groups or AD groups
  • define personal tiles (each user can configure his/her own tiles)
  • define a page backdrop (color or image) and optionally disable the Quick Launch menu
  • add tiles of different functionality:
    - Text or Image only
    - linked tiles with text/icon/image background
    - display list items ("top news", "most recent blog posts", "new documents" etc.)
    - rotate content (text and/or images)
    - random information chosen from a Sharepoint List or Library (text and/or image)
    - the current date
    - World clock
    - Facebook Timeline
    - Google Map
    - KPI information
    - News
    - PowerPB dashboards
    - RSS Feed
    - Stock Quotes
    - Twitter tweets
    - Weather information
    - Web Parts
    - Video (embedded or popup)
    - and even the Daily Dilbert

Hi,

The install fails with the following error:
Error: Cannot find this file specified in the manifest file: LAYOUTS\AETilesWebpart\AEPalette.aspx

Juerg

Rob,
this file was indeed missing in the most recent update for SP 2016 and has now been included.
Please re-download the zip file.

Great job on the new webpart Juerg.

The responsive design works great, but how do I control tile placement myself instead of relying on the browser size? The Marketing Homepage example looks great, but my tiles stretch all the way across the page. Is this controlled by the web part zones?
Juerg  
4/16/2018 10:33 
Benjamin,
you can control the width of the web part in 3 ways:
  1. the web part fits within the web part zone
  2. you can set the “Appearance/Width” to restrict the width
  3. You can enter the maximum number of columns into the web part’s “Options” setting as illustrated below:

    maxcolumns=8

I"m trying to get the List Items tile working like the example shown for the Quick Links. Can you update the example in the Content section as it is showing the example for the Calendar example. Thanks.
Troy Kapiczowski  
4/18/2018 01:08 
Trying out the Icon tile and I can get the Font Awesome icons to load but I can't get the Google Material Icons to show. I tried the example listed but all I get is an empty tile with the title.
Juerg  
4/18/2018 12:16 
we have now updated the "List Items" example to reflect the correct setting:
This example displays the events contained in the "MenuLinks" Links list, which contains a column named "Icon" holding a specific icon for each list item:

    


Title:QUICK LINKSContent:leave emptyURL:http://somedomain/Lists/MenuLinks.aspx
Juerg  
4/18/2018 12:22 
Troy,
we have now fixed the issue with the Google Material Icons when using IE 11.
Please re-download the updated zip file and then update the web part solution.
Troy Kapiczowski  
4/18/2018 16:06 
Thx for the updates.

I'm trying to configure a text tile with an image background. When I add the image I get a grey title bar across the top. I don't get that when I use a solid color. I tired a custom heading in the comments section but I still got the same results. I couldn't get my tile to look like the one you have in the examples.
Juerg  
4/18/2018 17:30 
Troy,
to get rid of the semitransparent background, please append “/transparency=off” to the “Contents” setting:

<h1 style='color:white;font-weight:normal;text-align:center'>Book your PTO</h1>/transparency=off
Troy Kapiczowski

I'm pointing the carousel tile to an announcement list and I'm getting the following error message.

List error for http://xxxx/Corp/Lists/Announcements/Ticker.aspx
Value does not fall within the expected range.

The link to the announcement list works as expected. The tile is not displaying the announcement contents.
Juerg  
4/18/2018 18:17 
Troy,
by default the tile is accessing the „Title“ and the “Body” fields of the Announcements list. Since you are pointing it to a specific list view, please make sure to include both fields in your list view.
Troy Kapiczowski  
4/18/2018 19:23 
I'm seeing a formatting issue with the current date tile. Out of the box settings have it slightly lower than other tiles, almost like there is double padding at the top. I can send a screen capture if you would like to see what its doing.

Office 365???? Wow, looks like you combined the best of the best into one web part. Can't wait to try!
Juerg  
4/19/2018 13:11 
Mike,
we’ll release an Office 365 later this year (but it is still a few months away).
Juerg  
4/19/2018 16:45 
Troy,
we noticed that the standard Sharepoint Corev15.css file is missing in your page. It declares the “P” HTML tags as follows:

margin:0px 0px 10px 0px

To fix the issue, please thus add the below to the web part’s “Options” setting:

css=.AETiles P {margin:0px 0px 10px 0px}

Weather Tile Error: I added the weather tile, but I get error "Could not load file or assembly AEWeatherMetroWebpart. I have the normal AE Weather Web Part active, but that didn't seem to help. Where can I get the AEWeatherMetroWebpart?
Benjamin

Column order issue: In your example at the top, there's a BIG tile with a car and 2 SQUARE tiles (Welcome back, Current Events). My version keeps pushing my two SQUARE tiles to the left, but below the BIG square, leaving a white tile height gap above my SQUARE tiles. What column order do I use to replicate your example above?
Benjamin  
4/23/2018 21:41 
Options format: I've been trying to add options in the options area, but none of my options are working.

sliderbullets=1,sliderspeed=4,maxcolumns=4

What format should I use to separate the options? I've tried commas, semicolons, and spaces.
Juerg  
4/24/2018 11:23 
Ben,
please download the Weather Metro web part from

regarding the misaligned tiles:
can you send a screen shot to support@amrein.com to illustrate the issue ?

regarding multiple options:
please separate multiple options with the "|" pipe character:

When using a tiny tile with the type set to icon is there a way to hide the title?
Juerg  
4/25/2018 12:55 
Troy,
you can hide the title by appending "/hide" to the "Title" field as for example:

My tiny icon/hide
Troy

Trying to hook up the RSS Feed icon with no success. I've tried using the example that you have supplied but I get nothing back. The tile links to the feed and if I click the tile I get to the xml code. If I put the /count=2 into the content section that is what is displayed in the tile.

Here is how I have the tile configured:
Type = RSS Feed
URL = http://feeds.abcnews.com/abcnews/internationalheadlines
Size = Big

I've tried with and without the Content section populated.
Juerg  
4/25/2018 19:44 
Troy,
please also set the web part’s “Target” to “Embedded”.
We will make this setting (when using the “RSS Feed” tile type) as the default in the web part’s next release.
Troy  
4/26/2018 17:48 
When using the carousel tile to display announcement entries I've noticed that the tile does not keep new line entries that are part of the announcement body. Is there anyway that the formatting can be forced onto the tile?
Juerg  
4/27/2018 11:55 
Troy,
we have now fixed this issue, eg. line breaks are now preserved by the “Carousel” tile.
Please re-download the updated version and then update the web part solution.
Troy  
4/27/2018 22:53 
Is it possible to create a random list item tile that points to a list with a rich text HTML editor so I can display images and text? I"m trying to replicate the "Tip of the Day" web part as one of the tiles.
Troy  
4/30/2018 19:01 
In the list items calendar example, how do you change the style on the databox. I can't seem to figure out how you did that in your example.
Juerg  
5/1/2018 12:44 
Troy,
yes, the „Random List Item“ actually allows you to embed a rich text field, preserving the HTML formatting applied to the field.
Juerg  
5/1/2018 12:52 
Troy,
you currently can override the „datebox“ background color by adding the below to the tile’s “CSS” setting:

datebox:red

(eg. enter either an HTML color value or an RGB value as eg. #ffcc00)
Troy  
5/2/2018 00:19 
Thanks for all the help Juerg.

With the random list item I see the /daily option for loading list items. Is there a way to limit the amount of text shown in the tile such as the carousel does with the /more=## option.
Troy  
5/2/2018 00:49 
I noticed on the carousel tile that if I try to change the text font using the css style 'color:white' I get no change. Same attribute on other tiles works fine.
Troy  
5/2/2018 00:53 
I also notice the same behavior on the current date tile where I can't change the font color.
Juerg  
5/2/2018 13:35 
the „Random List Item“ and „Single List Item“ tiles also support the “/more=xx” option (to be appended to the tile’s “Content” setting).
Please note that

- Rich text fields currently do not honor this option (in order to preserve the rich text content)
- The “xx” value in this case refers to the number of characters (as opposed to the number of words) being displayed.

The issues with some tiles not honoring the "color:xxx" CSS tile setting has now been fixed.
Please re-download the updated version and then update the web part solution.

We cant figure out how to control the tiles. There is a littel menue to edit tiles or add a tile right under the tiles, and that works. However, going directly into the list and adding tiles doesn't make the tiles appear. I modified the EditTiles view to see all fields and made sure the fields are the same but items are still not appearing as tiles. if i delete and add the web part back to the page, it seems to create a new instance of it. it does not show any of the previous tiles... It almost seems to me that there a hidden field that controls what web part displayed. Please help ASAP. Otherwise this Web Part is not helpful at all.
Juerg  
5/3/2018 13:21 
George,
the web part actually stores its instance ID in the AETiles list's hidden "Instance" column.Thi means that each web part can address the same master AETiles list and identify the tiles belonging to it via the "Instance" field.
We originally decided to hide this field to not confuse the users visiting the AETiles list and also stop them to mess up the Instance information since typically you can do all the configuration work via the web parts.
However, we have now made the "Instance" field not hidden anymore and the web part now also displays its instance ID in the edit toolpane:


Can you describe your usage scenario (eg. why you want to directly edit the tiles in the AETiles list ?
George  
5/3/2018 20:19 
Juerg, yes we have 3-week (or so) old version. Will update it and let you know if we still have any issues. Thanks for quick response btw. Your team provides the fastest tech support vs other vendors. We appreciate it.

Permission Control? I have a designer with "Design" permission to her sub-site. Although she can modify web parts settings and most everything else, she cannot see the Add/Edit options below the tiles. Giving her Full Control doesn't help. She can only see the Add/Edit options when I make her a Site Collection Administrator. This is not really ideal because she now has more access than I would like. How can I provide the Add/Edit icons without making someone a Site Collection Administrator?
Troy  
5/3/2018 22:12 
Using the carousel tile with an announcement list. I notice that when I add text to the body column which is a rich text field, formatting in the rich text field (such as bold, italics) is not reflected in the tile.
Juerg  
5/4/2018 11:49 
Ben,
to enable designers to add/edit/delete tiles, please assign your designer(s) „Contribute” permission to the “AETiles” Sharepoint list located in the root site of your site collection.
Juerg  
5/4/2018 13:21 
Troy,
we have now added the new  „/richtext“ option (to be added to the tile’s “Content” setting) in order to display the body text without stripping off the HTML formatting in the “Carousel” tile:


Please re-download the updated version and then update the web part solution.
Troy  
5/4/2018 21:30 
Thanks for the update.

Can you provide a bit more detail around the setup of a KPI tile? I have the KPI list at the site and the feature enabled, but nothing is displayed in the tile. In the content section I listed the title of the KPI list item I would like to display using the sum aggregation function. Also, any chance using the gauge instead of a tile?
Juerg  
5/7/2018 15:07 
Ben,
did you also enter the name of the list column to be summed up into the KPI List's "Data" field ?
We also have now add the new "/gauge" option (to be appended to the tile's "Content" setting) to display the KPI as a gauge:

When users click on tiles, they get Access Denied page even though they have access to the page they are being redirected. It seems that giving the users access as Site Collection Owners resolves the issue but it is not acceptable. We believe this is related to the AE Tiles list located on the Site collection root. Our users have access to the site collection (mostly as read-only users) and are able to access anything on the top site but when clicking tiles, the issue 'shows up'. Please advise.
Juerg  
5/8/2018 15:48 
George,
the web part by default counts the number of clicks for each tile and updates the total in the AETiles list.
You thus either can
  • grant your users "Contribute" permission to the AETiles list
  • or disable the click counter by adding the below to the web part's "Options" setting:

    clicks=0
Ben

Is there a way to specify a different column name in the list items tile other than the default "Title" field?
Troy  
5/11/2018 00:46 
We are having issues with other users trying to navigate to other parts of our SharePoint site. We get the error "Sorry, this site hasn't been shared with you." Here are a few scenarios.

- We have tiles that point to other parts of our SharePoint site, these pages are open to everyone. Testing the tile link gives us the above error message but we can cut/paste the URL and access the page correctly.

- Having an announcement tile or random list item tile accessing lists in the same subsite as the main tile page. Users get the same message as above. If we navigate to the underlying lists we can see all the data.

We are wondering if there is some security setting or other site setting we are missing to get this to work. It seems that users are trying to get to something they don't have access to when clicking a tile. Seems to work for me but I have farm admin permissions.
Juerg  
5/11/2018 12:02 
Troy,
the permission issue is caused by the web part counting the number of clicks by default.
Please see my post dating from May 8 on how to resolve this issue.
Troy  
5/11/2018 16:53 
Thanks Juerg. I didn't see that previous post.
Juerg  
5/11/2018 17:53 
Ben,
we have now added the option to specify a custom template for the “List Items” tile type by entering the custom template into the tile's "Content" setting as illustrated by the below example where you embed the columns enclosed in curly braces:

<li>{First Name} {Last Name} - {Department}</li>
Roberta   
5/15/2018 21:14 
Hi, we are excited to try this web part! Will it be available on 0365 Sharepoint at some future time? Thank you!
Ben  
5/16/2018 02:07 
Thanks for adding the list feature in the list items tile. How can I specify which column will open the list item. When you specify an <li> the link to item no longer works.
Juerg  
5/16/2018 14:24 
Roberta,
we will offer an Office 365 version, but its release date is still several months away (due to the complexity of this web part).
Juerg  
5/16/2018 14:26 

Ben,
to link a column to the list's detail view, please add the "{link}" pseudo token (surrended by the HTML tag) as illustrated by the below example:

<li><a {link}{Customer}</a> - {Company}</li>


Ben  
5/22/2018 22:46 
For the Carousel tile. I have a column created in the picture library, but when I click anywhere in the tile displaying the image it will only open the last image uploaded to the library. If click on the far right of the tile, the linked image opens. How do make sure the when I click anywhere on the tile the linked image is displayed?

Hi there
I am trialing this webpart. It looks pretty good. I am struggling thought. I am trying to display a simple filtered announcement list using the carousel type. The URL I am using is directly to the AllItems.aspx view and is embedded.

This displays as the page the list sits on rather than the content of the list only. (Tilte and body)

Thanks for your help.

Ed Dempsey
Juerg  
5/23/2018 11:33 
Ed,
assuming that you set the

- “Tile Type” to “Carousel”
- “URL” to the list (or list view) as eg. http://somedomain/somesite/Lists/News/Top5.aspx

You will then also need to set the “Target” to “In Place” (eg. displaying the news items within the tile).
Juerg  
5/23/2018 18:43 
Ben,
what exactly do you mean by „I have created a column” ?
Did you create a column named “URL” ?
Please note that this is only needed if you do not simply want to open the image itself (Which the web part does by default) but redirect the user to some other place.

I can't seem to get my tiles to go into a table type format with multiple columns and rows, similar to the ones you have with different sizes. I've set maxcolumns to 2 with 5 tiles and they all show stacked vertically.

Van,
if you set the "maxcolumns" option to "2", then you will be able to fit a max. of 2 tiles each using the default "square" size, but only one per row when adding a tile that has double width (as eg. the "Big" tile).
The "maxcolumns" value thus defines the max. number of default horizontal units (as displayed by the "square" tile size) per row (as opposed to the number of tiles per row, independent of the tile sizes used).

I have a carousel tile pointing to an announcement list. In the announcement body I have entered a hyperlink. When the body is displayed in the tile the hyperlink has been removed and only the text is available. Is there anyway to get the hyperlink to display in the tile.

I'm having a small issue with tile alignment. I have set the maxcolumns=11 and my first row of "square" tiles adheres to this number as I have 11 square tiles before going to the next row.

On the next row I have the following tiles:

- 2x4 list item
- 4x3 carousel
- 3x3 list items
- square clock
- square clock

That should put me at 11 columns but I'm getting 2 tiny tiles on the end of that row instead of being placed on the next row, stacked on top of each other to fill in a half column

I can send you a screen capture so you can see what is going on with the alignment.

Troy,
we have now published version 1.0.15 which preserves the links embedded in the body text when using the “Carousel” tile type.
We also were able to fix the issue when using the "maxcolumns" option in combination with the "Tiny" tile size.
Please re-download the updated version and then update the web part solution.

Juerg, this is a great solution, thank you for making it (and all the other web parts), are there any plans to add an Instagram option?
Juerg  
6/4/2018 11:36 
Donovan,
are you looking for adding individual Instagram photos or Instagram feeds ?
Please choose the “RSS Feed” tile type and then enter the below URL into the into the “URL” setting of the tile to display your Instagram feed:

Hi Juerg,

I cant get Dilbert to work in a text tile. Can you give me some instructions. Thanks, Ted
Juerg  
6/13/2018 11:13 
Ted,
please note that the {Dilbert} placeholder needs to be the only text in the "Content" setting. Please also make sure that you did not enter any leading blanks left to the left of the placeholder.
Ted  
6/13/2018 14:36 
Thank you Juerg, it worked!

Juerg,

I am trying to use a text tile with a hyperlink to a Microsoft Reporter web application. I get the following error.


List error for http://sv-db/Reports/Pages/Folder.aspx?ItemPath=%2fnetFORUMHDA%2fHDA&ViewMode=Detail:The Web application at http://sv-db/Reports/Pages/Folder.aspx?ItemPath=%2fnetFORUMHDA%2fHDA&ViewMode=Detail could not be found. Verify that you have typed the URL correctly. If the URL should be serving existing content, the system administrator may need to add a new request URL mapping to the intended application.

Ted  
6/13/2018 21:20 
The above link works fine if I paste it in a browser. It also works in SharePoint 2016 promoted links.

thanks,
Ted
Juerg  
6/14/2018 11:04 
Ted,
the web part interprets your link as a pointer to a Sharepoint List.
To avoid this behavior please enter some text into the tile’s “Content” setting (enter &nbsp; if you do not want to display any text in the tile).
Troy  
6/14/2018 21:46 
In the employees spotlight example I can get the attachment image to show if I use the code in the example.

<table><tr>
<td>{Attachments/round}</td>

If I remove the /round the picture disappears and I"m left with on the image URL.

Also, are there any other options other than round? I tried /square with no luck.

Thanks for the all the help.
Juerg  
6/15/2018 11:17 
Troy,
you actually can format the image yourself (if you do not specify an “/option” the web part just returns the attachment URL) as illustrated below:

<img src='{Attachments}' width=50>

BTW, we now also have added the “/icon” option as eg.

{Attachments/icon}

which displays the image in a small size (64px wide).
Ted  
6/15/2018 14:16 
Juerg,

I am using the list items tile type to point to a SharePoint 2016 list. I created the icon column in the list and populated it with a url that points to an icon. The icon shows up fine in the list and if I navigate to it using the url. However, when I point the list items tile to the list, the icon does not show, Instead the url does.

thanks,
Ted
Juerg  
6/15/2018 14:43 
Ted,
the documentation is not making clear that by “Icon” we actually refer to a “Font Awesome” icon (please see https://fontawesome.com/v4.7.0/icons/):



eg. selecting a Font Awesome icon and then entering the icon name nto the “Icon” column.

Hi Juerg,

Is there a way I can use the SQL Query webpart inside one of the tiles of the tiles webpart? Same question for the weather webpart, not the weather metro webpart?

thanks,

Juerg

Ted,
yes, you can add both web parts via the new "Webpart" tile type:

In the Tiles web part there is an option to add a tile which is a web part. How does that work. I would like to build a page like your screenshots. With a Spotlight web part as a tile.
Juerg  
6/27/2018 13:45 
Andrew,
to display a user spotlight tile, please
  • download and then update the “User Spotlight” web part (Version 1.2.4)
  • download and then update the “Tiles” web part (Version 1.0.19)
  • if your "Tile Type" does not yet include the "Webpart" choice, navigate to the “AETiles” list and edit the “Tile Type” column by adding the “Webpart” choice
Please then configure the tile as follows:

    How do you configure the /comments options. When add the /comments I get an error stating: List 'AEComments' does not exist at site with URL. "gives site collection site address."
    Juerg  
    6/28/2018 13:49 
    Ben,
    to activate the "/comments" feature, please download and then install the free  „AE Comments“ web part from

    SP 2010:
    /download/AECommentsWebpart.zip  

    SP 2013:
    /download/AECommentsWebpart2013.zip

    SP 2016:
    /download/AECommentsWebpart2016.zip

    Ben  
    6/28/2018 19:34 
    I deployed the AEComments solution and activated it on the root site, but there still is not a list called AEComments. Is there a list template for this like the KPI Tiles or should the solution create one? I can place the web part on a page, but I'm not sure about the supporting list.
    Juerg  
    6/28/2018 19:51 
    Ben,
    if you installed the most recent version (1.0.8), then the solution will automatically create the AEComments list in the root site of your site collection when you first open the comments dialog.

    You also can manually create the list by extacting the AEComments.stp file from the downloaded zip file (we have now added it to the Zip package, so you might need to redownload it), then uploading the template to "Site settings/List templates" and then create the list via "Site contents/add an app" by choosing the above template and naming the list "AEComments".
    Ben  
    6/29/2018 21:40 
    I checked each version looking for the stp file, but don't see it in the zip files. I downloaded new versions.
    Juerg  
    7/2/2018 11:33 
    Ben,
    the AEComments.stp file is actually contained in the AEComments ZIP download packaga (as opposed to the AE TIles Zip download).

    I tried upgrading my Tiles web part in SP2016. I ran the install2016 and received an error that the solution already exists. I then tried up use the STSADM upgradesolution like:

    %STSADM% -o upgradesolution -filename AETilesWebpart.wsp -n aetileswebpart.wsp -immediate –allowGacDeployment

    It completed, but now the awtileswebpart solution shows an error:

    Last Operation Result: Some of the files failed to copy during deployment of the solution.
    Last Operation Details: YPITSP16APP1 : C:\Windows\Temp\solution-5338fe71-8f22-4c3e-8bb2-3b37c24ef7a0\aetileswebpart.wsp could not be created because the contents could not be found under id 5f2a3c45-577f-44d0-89a6-29bbd8d2734e in the configuration database.

    I then tried updating with powershell with:

    Update-SPSolution -Identity aetileswebpart.wsp -LiteralPath c:\install\amrein\aetileswebpart2016\aetileswebpart.wsp -gacdeployment

    I’m still stuck with the same error. My guess is that the solution is dependent on other solutions like the webpart or comments which I don't have installed. How to I properly update the solution?
    Juerg  
    8/2/2018 19:18 
    Ben,
    please update the web part as follows:

    Extract and then place the WSP file in the c:\ root folder of the Sharepoint web front end server and the run the below Sharepoint PowerShell cmdlet (run as admin):

    Update-SPSolution –Identity AETilesWebpart.wsp –LiteralPath c:\AETilesWebpart.wsp -GACDeployment

    can the Tiels direction can be RTL?
    Juerg  
    8/3/2018 16:40 
    Ron,
    would you want the tiles to be arranged from right to left, including the content of the tiles ?
    Ron  
    8/3/2018 16:48 
    Yes
    Juerg  
    8/3/2018 17:00 
    Ron,
    will the web part be placed in a site which is using a RTL language (as eg. Hebrew or Arabic) ?
    Ron  
    8/3/2018 17:02 
    Hey
    yes, Hebrew
    Ron  
    8/4/2018 20:30

    I'm trying to install the comments feature for some of the tiles but I'm completely lost. I've installed it as a webpart but these is no list and if there is a list created at root what is the URL for it. There is no stp file in any of the downloads as of today. I'm happy to create a list for it but, what type of list, what columns does it need.
    Are there detailed instructions for this anywhere.
    Thanks
    Cheers
    Gayle
