Tiles List

Here you will need to connect your web part with a SharePoint list. Without it, the web part will not function and an notification message will appear. Let's get to it:

  1. On Tiles List, click Add List

  2. On the first text box insert one of the two:

    • The URL of the list you created
    • A URL of a site collection

    Use relative paths for this field. So instead of using an URL like, you should use something like /sites/Home/.

  3. Second box, select the list you have created to be used if not already selected;

  4. Choose your Filtering Options to filter your list elements. You can choose to have:

    • No Filters - You show all the items on the list.
    • CAML Query - You can query the list to just show items based on the query built.
    • Select a View of the list - You can pick the List View created and just show those elements on the list.
  5. When you're done, click on the 💾(save) icon to save.


How to use CAML Query

You can use a free 3rd party software for creating the query, like this one👉 Then you can copy the query and use it as a filter. Below is an example with multiple filters allowed of a query you can have.

If you’re using SharePoint 2013, install the U2U CAML Query Builder for SharePoint 2013 (Standalone Edition).

        <And>// have to meet this 2 conditions
            <Eq> //Equal
                <FieldRef Name='PromotedState' />
                <Value Type='Number'>2</Value>
            <Leq> //Lower or Equal
                <FieldRef Name="Created" />
                <Value Type="DateTime" Offset="-90"> // -90 days from today
                    <Today />
        <FieldRef Name='Created' Ascending='False'></FieldRef> // Most Recent to older created element
<RowLimit>3</RowLimit> // Number of items that you want to show
