  2. Toward the right of the widget, select more_horiz > Overrides. The Overrides widget appears.
  3. Expand Layout Overrides. Drop-down lists AboveAside, and Below appear for the module's position.
  4. From one of the drop-down lists, select Replace.
  5. Click add_circle_outline , and select Shared. A form appears.
  6. In the Module field, click the selection field. The search panel appears.
  7. In the search panel, search for an existing module or create a new one.
  8. Close the search panel. Your Shared form looks similar to the following:
