Add Homepage component on sidebar

Hi!

 

i've created a home page component that i want to be shown on the sidebar.  i've added it to the home page layout and

thing is , i'm able to see the component  when i go to my home page, but i'm ot able to see it on the collapsible sidebar.

 

How can i  view the component without checking Show Custom Sidebar Components on All Pages on User interface?

Hi Scar, 

 

See this: 

If you have custom home page layouts that include components in the sidebar, this option makes the sidebar components available on all pages for all users in your organization. If you only want certain users to view sidebar components on all pages, grant those user the “Show Custom Sidebar On All Pages” permission.

 
Note:
If the Show Custom Sidebar Components on All Pages user interface setting is selected, the “Show Custom Sidebar On All Pages” permission is not available.

Hi Scar,

 

 

Have you added your component to the Narrow Side bar  ?

If you have added the Component to the Wide right Bar it will appear even if the Side Bar is Collapsed. 

Did not quite understand -"Not able to see it on the collapsible sidebar".

Yes.Actually, i added the component to the narrow side bar.

I'm able to see my component on the home page layout., but it's not visible on the sidebar.
To make it visible, i had to check show Custom Sidebar Components on All Pages.

Hi Scar, 

 

Yes, we have to check that in the UI Setup to add the component.
