I notice that the tiles only fire actions when you either click on the text or icon, but not on the unused space elsewhere on the tile.
Is this by design or would it be possible to make the associated action fire if you click anywhere on the tile.
It's not required that you use a div on the tile. You can also use anchor tags if that's what you're looking for?
Otherwise just add a click/touch handler to the element when you want something to happen when clicked.
