The List Tile


The list tile is designed for you to be able to view content from any sort of field in SharePoint in a detailed view. This includes allowing you to see the information in an overall view or being able to view an item in more detail.

In addition, you will be able to create and edit new list items if enabled from this tile, allowing you to skip entering the SharePoint backend making the experience easier to use.
