The Interactive Canvas is a feature that provides dynamic content to help get a quick overview of information such as tasks, corporate news, and relevant pages in your intranet.

Features of the Interactive Canvas module

The module provides a quick overview supported by dynamic content that can be customized according to the needs of your intranet.

For example, it can show corporate news, weather, current stock prices etc. Each tile allows various actions thanks to templates that can be configured in the settings.

You can implement Display templates, Hover templates, and Action templates to reach the design and functionalities you desire. However, it is not mandatory to apply all three. Tiles are easy to create and re-configure in both classic and modern pages.

The Interactive Canvas can be added to the Power Panel or as a separate page.

Delivering the complete overview

The tiles can behave like links, display an image, render HTML, show rich text, or open a pop-up window or web application. By simply adding content and adjusting functions to the dashboard, the Interactive Canvas brings endless variations and opportunities. Managed correctly, this will become the place all employees turn to in order to get the complete overview of all work-related information and tasks.

As an intranet administrator, you configure a selection of tiles. Each tile can be set up with its own background color, icon, image, and audience targeting.

From this selection, editors can select which tiles to include in an overview on a particular web page.

In this way, you can use the tiles to deliver users a dashboard with the complete overview of tools and information, or you can use the tiles to create an overview of content and links within a specific area, such as a selection of handbooks.

Global access

By adding the Interactive Canvas to Wizdom Power Panel, the dashboard becomes globally available to users who can access their personal overview from everywhere in the digital workplace.
