If you go to where you added a tile, and don't see a red "x" in the upper right hand corner of the tile to delete, you will need to reach out your College Security team to see if they have access for those changes.

OK, thank you, Corinne. I'll check that now. Thank you for your help.

Jennifer Achziger

What is the maximum number of personalized Homepages one can have?

Tanjagay Martin

Hello Jennifer, your question is greatly appreciated; thank you. Tiles provide a new navigational and informational structure, allowing users to perform routine tasks quickly. Tiles added to homepages offer direct access to targeted functionality. The system sets a limit of 10 user-defined homepages. Thanks again, Jennifer! ~Tanjagay Martin | CS Core Trainer
