Banner with Links (Department site banner)

Banner with Links is an excellent choice to make your Department Sites and Team Sites stand out.

Setting up the web part

On the site where you need to show the web part, create a new SharePoint list with the title [Quick Links]. This list will house the quick links shown underneath the banner.
The list should have the following fields:

  1. Title [default / no need to create]
  2. Icon [single line of text]
  3. URL [Hyperlink or Picture]
  4. Active [Yes/No]
  5. New Window [Yes/No]
  6. Display Order [Number]

Next, add below web part to the page:
