Roles: Admin, Editor, Article Editor for global articles, Space Owner/Admin for Space Featured Story
If you are an Editor or Administrator, you can choose to feature a Global news article to appear as a standout story on the main Activity page by setting it up as a Hero Article. It appears on the top right.
To set up an article as a Hero Article / Featured Story, it must:
- be a global article
- be published already
- have a landscape cover image
- 800px x 330px images are recommended. The safe space for text and important elements of an image: 490px x 330px. The safe space allows for compatibility across different device types.
Looking at the Workvivo Activity page:
This is the Hero Article in this example:
