Tiles are customizable buttons that allow staff to complete actions quickly. Think of them as shortcuts--adding a 10% discount to an order, for example. Tiles provide contextual information and let merchants quickly access workflows, actions, and information from the smart grid and the top of detail pages. They’re dynamic and can change based on surrounding context, such as what’s in the cart.

Content guidelinesAnchor link to section titled "Content guidelines"
- A tile has a title and an optional subtitle - Only use the subtitle if there’s additional specific context that’s helpful to the merchant. Don’t use the subtitle to explain the action in more detail. ✅ Winter2021 | 20% off - ❌ Add customer | Select a new or existing customer. |-|
- Cart shortcuts should follow the verb + noun pattern. However, you don’t need to specify that the action will affect the cart. ✅ Add customer - ❌ Add customer to cart - ✅ Add custom sale - ❌ Custom sale
- Keep in mind that content can expand when translated (plan for at least 50% text expansion). If your primary action is long, consider removing the subtitle.
