Once you’ve added a content item to a board, you can call attention to it by making it a leading item. This enlarges the item and moves it to the right side of your banner area, making it the very first item on the board.
Because of the prominent place it occupies, a leading item should be very graphically appealing. Try selecting an item with strong visuals, like a video or infographic. Remember: your goal is to communicate key information to viewers, and entice them to explore your board.
A board with a leading item
Note: A board can only have one leading item.
To select a leading item:
1. Go to your Folloze homepage. Click on the board you want to edit.
2. Click the Design tab. Go to Banner.
3. Go to Show Leading Item.
4. Click Change. This opens a menu of all items currently on the board.
4. Choose a leading item from the menu by clicking the item’s name. At the bottom, click Select.
5. Click Save to save your changes.
Tip: Selecting a leading item often changes the sequence of your content, as the leading item automatically becomes the first item on the board, regardless of its original placement in the content tab. And this can alter the journey your viewers take when exploring your content from start to finish.
So, when choosing a leading item, make sure your content still follows a sequence that makes sense to readers and conveys a clear narrative or message. To achieve this, you may have to rearrange your other items.
And to avoid confusion, you may want to manually move the leading item to the very first position on your content tab (see below), so you know exactly what sequence your viewers will see.
