Step 5: Set Background Options

Background design element is used to add a background area to your page. The background can be an image, video, or color. You can control the size, alignment, and many other options.


In Settings tab: Set the height to be 1/2 screen  height

You can add any value you want, but % values will set the height based on the device screen height, therefore we recommend this.

Open Background tab and insert the URLs for the following image and video.

Why image and video? Because auto-play video is not supported on mobile devices. When you add the image, it will be loaded when the video is not supported.

Most design elements, when inserted to the editor, will contain an empty white area. You can type text inside this area, add web parts, app parts, images and anything you see in SharePoint ribbon.


We will Type a welcome message and apply some formatting:
