The featured carousel is a way to highlight your content in a larger visual manner by creating a category that contains the work you want to spotlight. You can have up to 20 items in your featured carousel.
First, create a category if you haven't already done so by navigating to Content > Categories and clicking the (+) icon. Alternatively, you can go to Content > Collections, select the checkboxes next to the desired collections, and click Add to category in the upper right side of the page.
Next, go to your Category list by clicking the Categories header on the Content page. Select the category you wish to feature and the edit panel will slide out.
On the Basics tab of the panel, scroll down and check the Make featured carousel checkbox. You can also select Automatically cycle if you want the carousel to cycle through each item automatically.
Select the Access tab and make sure the Available to your Subscribers checkbox is selected. Then save your changes.
On your site, you will see the featured carousel displayed at the top of the page.
