How to add tiles for creating new files to the FM 2019 welcome screen

FM's Welcome Screen is a customizable HTML document. The bulk of the Welcome Screen consists of tiles that a user can click to create a new document; different tiles use different templates. An example of how a tile is defined in the HTML source is:

<a href="http://fm-welcomescreen/?cmd=newdocument-portrait" class="createTile basicPortrait" title="Portrait">Portrait</a>

Note that the values of the href and class attributes somehow select the template to use and the appearance of the tile. I would like to modify my Welcome Screen to replace the existing tiles with those that use the templates for a specific project. Is there a way to change the values of href and class to customize a new tile? If not, is there another technique I can use?
