Team Details


Only Guru team Admins can see Customize blocks, which is how to edit the custom content block and select Featured Cards. Non-Admin users will see an "empty state" message and image until their team Admin customizes this area of the team's dashboard.

Custom content block

This is a text block with a header. It might contain information such as a summary of what your Guru instance will be used for, a company description, or a message from a team leader.

πŸ’‘ Tip
You can customize this content by using some light Markdown to add headers, bold/italics, and more. It is important to note that this block (unlike Guru Cards) only supports strict markdown syntax, not HTML.

Featured Cards

Admins can choose which Cards appear in the team's featured Card section, located on the right-hand side of the user dashboard.
