This article will explain how to get started writing content, and how to collaborate with your team in GatherContent.
Each project has a content hub. This is where all of the content for this project is held.
Each piece of content is an item, that makes up the project.
- Content is stored in items
Click the name of any item on the content hub to start working on the content.
- Items are structured using fields
Inside an item, you enter content into fields which make up the structure of the item. You can use text fields, asset fields and more. This structure can be saved as a template, which you can easily apply to multiple items.
- Click into a field on an item and begin typing to add content
Start typing in a text field to add content to an item. Content is autosaved as you make changes. You can see who else is editing an item by their avatar, shown near the top of the page.
- You can format your content using the formatting toolbar or keyboard shortcuts
Any formatting applied will kept when migrating your content to your CMS.
- Check which items you're assigned to
You can check if you're assigned to any items from a project's Overview tab, from the list of your assignments or from the content hub, by clicking the 'only show my assignments' button.
- Comments are used to discuss content with your team
You can @mention your colleagues to notify them directly and conversations can be resolved before moving an item onto the next status in the workflow.
- An item's workflow status indicates where it is in the workflow
When you're finished adding content, move the item onto the next workflow status to signal to the team that you're done. You could also leave a comment too.
