Content

What appears on the MyLinksWidget is managed from the AppManager “Applications Links” content app, the widget property “”Incorporate Teams widget”  and user’s personal links.   It is recommended on the OOTB view, to have only three tabs.

 The “Applications” tab title and links are managed in the AppManager content app “Applications Links”, the category title is the title displayed on the tab.  A second quicklink category can be added if Teams has been removed. For multilingual, the tab titles (quicklink category title e.g. Applications) and links are managed by creating language versions of this content. Under the Applications category, links can be associated with an image or icon.
