This article will explain what an item is and how items are structured. It also covers re-ordering items to update your sitemap and writing content in an item.
- Projects are made up of folders and items
Folders represent the hierarchy of your content, and folders contain items.
- Items are the content pieces inside a project
You'll find the items on the content hub of a project, inside folders. Each named page on the list is an item. Click on the name of any item, to access the content inside. Click the 'Create new item' button inside any folder to add items there.
- You can easily update your sitemap or item hierarchy
Click, drag and drop items to re-order them. Items can be dragged around within a folder, or over to a different folder on the sidebar.
- 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.
- 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.
- Assign your team to items they need to work on
Use the people dropdown in an item to assign your team to it. You can assign people to multiple items at once from the content hub.
- Comments are used to discuss content with your team
You can @mention your colleagues to notify them directly. Conversations can be resolved before moving an item onto the next status in the workflow. You can check the comment history to revisit older conversations.
- Keep track of content changes using revisions
Revisions compare the content between two points in time, so you can see what's changed between saves.
- Use the workflow status and due date to stay on top of creating content
Items have a workflow status which tells you where it is in the project lifecycle. Each workflow status has a due date. You can see both of these at the top of an item.
