Group Tile Menus

Laura Curran Updated by Laura Curran

Wanna make your group look super awesome all while helping group members navigate efficiently through your content? We think it’s a great idea to set up a group tile menu. You can easily set this up in the Padoq web portal within minutes 🌟

What is a group tile menu?

The group tile menu is a slick and efficient option for your group and makes finding content a breeze. Instead of the standard group feed that you would normally land on when you enter a group, you can create a menu with several tiles, each navigating members to a different app feature. Each tile can have a different action: from linking users to an external URL; taking users to a filtered feed with a specific #tag; to navigating to your group calendar.

There’s lots of actions to pick from but the idea is that you can prioritise features that you want your group members to use and which features will be most useful to your group members.

Here's an example of a group tile member:

Styling your group tile menu

You can have as many tiles as you want in your group. But remember, the whole point is to make it easy for your users to navigate your group...so don't go too over the top! You can have a maximum of 4 tiles across.

We have the following options when setting up a group tile menu so you can make it both pretty 🎀 and extremely efficient:

  • Text Colour
  • Background Colour
  • Image URL (you can add an image to fill the full tile)
  • Icon URL (like the example above)

For sizes and formats, follow our app tile style guide here.
