Customise the tile
If you would like to customise the tile such as the colour and/or size. Select the ‘Personalise’ button, locate the tile you would like to change and select the cog button on the tile.
To hide a tile
To hide the tile, click on the personalise button, find the tile you would like to hide and select the hide button. The tiles that you hide, will then be moved to a list under the ‘Hidden’ tab on the right hand side as shown below.
Once you have hidden the tiles you need to select ‘Save Changes’.
