In SharePoint 2013 each team site by default comes with a new feature named Promoted Links list pre-loaded with links to commonly performed actions. These links are displayed as Tiles in the home page. However, in Publishing Portal template you won’t find it unless you activate a feature named “Team Collaboration Lists”.
To enable the “Promoted Links” list, please follow the below steps:
I have created an intranet site for our organisation with about 5 site pages. On one site page I was able to add the promoted links app but on another page it doesn't appear in my add an app list. I have followed your instructions above and the Team Collaboration Lists is activated so not sure why it is not displaying in my add an app list.
Thanks in advance.
