When creating posts in the Studio, you can highlight them in the Featured Posts widget by selecting Show in "Featured Posts". The widget displays the 4 most recently featured posts, with the newest at the top. A post can be removed from the widget by editing it and deselecting the option.
The way the widget displays differs based on the module(s) you use.
Set up the widget (Multichannel)
The widget displays automatically on the right side of the platform as soon as a post is featured. The widget disappears automatically if no posts are featured.
Set up the widget (Intranet + Multichannel)
The featured posts widget is managed and added to your platform like any widget. However, if no posts are featured, it won't show for users until a post is featured.
