Storyboard mode distributes your hero images and messages throughout the home page, breaking up content and giving more visibility to each individual item.
The content will automatically adapt to the number of slides that have been set up in the carousel system. Set up the slides exactly how you would the classic mode carousel.
We recommend this mode because data proves that a sliding carousel is largely ignored, and that slides after the first one aren't seen.
If they are not set up correctly, as is often the case, then they simply waste screen space. We have compiled a number of reports that show why you shouldn't use them. For further insights, read the following articles:

If you would prefer to use this mode, please note that you should set up clear calls to action to avoid visitors ignoring the carousel.
Configure the number of products displayed for the Featured Products, Most Popular Products and New Products Panels, or disable the panel so that it no longer displays on the home page.
