I'm very aware and in agreement with the buttons for actions and links for navigation practice but I have come stuck on this design.
It is an internal company portal, and this is the dashboard for Sponsorship. So this page basically shows you the six features of the Sponsorship section. Technically none of these are actions they all just link to a page of data which you can review or then perform actions on.
Do you think this is an appropriate design (to use button styled links) for a Dashboard?
If you disagree with the button-style navigation, how best should I go forward with making these links?
