The major change is the "Cover Image" which goes across the top of the page. This will become the focal point of the page, and should be chosen with care. We see a lot of great opportunities to use this for integrated campaigns. For example, a logo for a matching gift campaign, or a featured volunteer could all be the focus of a cover image. But, more commonly we are seeing a mission-specific image.
Check out my breakdown of what goes where:
Some other notable features of the timeline are:
- Different placement of "tabs" and renaming them to "apps"
- The ability to "feature" a story and have it take up both columns of your timeline.
- The timeline allows you to tell the story of an organization's history. The small strip of dates along the side can let you go back all the way to the founding, and you can add images and text. There is plenty of room for creativity when sharing these milestones!
