The Featured content screen in the Admin Panel, allows Fuse admins to add items of content to the featured content banner on the main Fuse homepage, and above the main content feed on the Fuse mobile app. You might do this if there are important items of content that all users should see when landing on the main homepage or when viewing the mobile app, such as important questions, videos, links, files, topics, and articles.
Learning plans and surveys cannot be added to the Featured content carousel.
With the exception of events, which do not appear on the mobile version of the carousel, the same content is displayed on both the desktop and mobile apps.
There are two versions of the Featured content carousel:
Desktop carousel: The desktop version of the carousel can be displayed at the top of the main Fuse homepage. On the desktop version of the carousel, each item scrolls automatically and is displayed at timed intervals.
Mobile app carousel: The mobile version of the carousel can be displayed at the top of the main content feed. Content displayed on the mobile version of the Featured content carousel does not scroll automatically, meaning users must manually swipe to view each item.
An item of content's title, description, and thumbnail are displayed on the content card on the mobile app, which can be configured on the Edit content screen.
Fuse supports the following image types for content thumbnails: GIF, HEIC, JPE, JPEG, JPG, PNG, and TIFF.
