Quicklinks for modern experience

Remember, this guide is only for modern experiences. If you are not sure whether you are on a modern or classic, please check this read from Microsoft.

Adding the Quicklinks web part

  1. Go to the page where you want to add a web part.
  2. If the page is not already in edit mode, click Edit at the top right of the page.
  3. Hover your mouse on any section of the page and you’ll see a line with a circled +, like this:

           4. Find the Quick links web part and click it to add to the page.

  1. Go to the page where you want to edit a web part.
  2. If the page is not already in edit mode, click Edit at the top right of the page.
  3. Hover your mouse over the web part that you want to edit and click the pencil (Edit web part) from the contextual menu that displays on the left side

        4. In the settings panel you can configure the following web part settings:

  • Template lets you select a template for the web part. Choose between two pre-made templates.
  • Ticking Allow personal links will allow users to add their own personal links that only they can see in the web part.

Adding categories, shared and corporate links

Shared and corporate links are links that are visible for all users or specific audiences. These kinds of links can only be added when the page is in edit mode.

  1. Go to the page where you want to edit a web part.
  2. If the page is not already in edit mode, click Edit at the top right of the page.
  3. In the Quick links web part click the Edit button to display the web part in edit mode as shown here:

 

Adding personal links

Adding personal links is like adding shared links, the only difference is that you do not have to edit the page.

Your content goes here. Edit or remove this text inline or in the module Content settings. You can also style every aspect of this content in the module Design settings and even apply custom CSS to this text in the module Advanced settings.

Templates

The Quicklinks web part comes with two pre-made templates:

  • List
  • Visual

List template

The list template displays a simple list of links.

Visual template

The visual template displays a list of links with an image and a title. We recommend using image size 63×63 pixels for a perfect fit.

Limitations in modern

  1. It’s currently not possible to add links with an icon – only images are available.
  2. Allowing users to sort and delete predefined links (shared and corporate links) is not possible – users can only edit, delete and move their own links.
  3. It’s not possible to create categories, shared and corporate links from Quick links in Power Panel due to limitations – but it will work for personal links.
