The Content page can only be accessed when you're inside a project and you have the right permissions.

Note: Everything we'll cover here is from the point of view of a user with an admin role. If you're not an admin, some of the items covered here won't be available or visible to you. See "Complete Guide to Permissions" and " User Roles and Permissions" for more info.

Content items in "list view" mode

The highlight of this page is the content items table which, by default, displays items that are currently being worked on. 

It has the following columns: Title, Status, PeopleDue date, Template, Category, and Action. We'll discuss them in greater detail.

You can adjust how many items are displayed in the table at once via the Show dropdown tool located in the lower right end of the table.

By default, the 25 most recent content items that are currently being worked on are displayed.

Filtering Content Items

Different filtering options are available on top of the content items table.

Clicking the show all filters icon (#1) reveals additional filtering options (#3). Completed content items are hidden by default, but you can toggle show completed (#2) to reveal them.

Title Column

The title column contains the content item's topic title. Note that this is different from the item's actual h1 title in the content editor.

When clicked, you will be redirected to the content editor, allowing you to make changes to the content item's text, images, and other metadata information.

Status Column

The status column displays a content item's current workflow status. It also shows how long it is in the said status when you hover your mouse over it.

Clicking it brings out the "Assigned people and due dates" window.

The "Assigned people and due dates" window lets you change responsible people and due dates

This will allow you to change responsible users for a particular workflow status and set due dates as well.

People Column

The people column displays icons of all assigned users to all workflow statuses of a content item. You can mouse over them to view their complete name along with their role.

Clicking the plus (+) icon opens up the "Assigned people and due dates" window.

Due Date Column

This displays the due date for a content item's current workflow status. Clicking on them brings out the "Assigned people and due dates" window as well.

Template Column

This column displays the content item's current template. Clicking on it brings out the template selection window.

Template Selection Window

Clicking the Create a new template link will redirect you to the template settings page where. You can learn more about templates here.

Action Column

Finally, we have the action column. it's a dropdown menu containing shortcuts to various actions that you can perform its corresponding content item.

It's mostly the same stuff as the ones we've discussed earlier except for the Cancel option. Canceling a content item will bring it back to the Briefs page. When that happens, everything will be reset, except for the text content. When a new user claims a canceled content item, the previous text content (if any) will be restored. The same happens when it's manually assigned to a user.

List View and Hierarchy

There are two different view modes on the Content items page. By default, the table will use the classic list view.

The hierarchy view allows you to drag and drop items to arrange them into a hierarchy. One usage scenario for hierarchy view is when you're working on a website's content.

A typical example of different page levels in a website

In the above example, we see how some content items are under another content item, showing their relationship with one another.

Using Hierarchy View

To use the hierarchy view, simply activate it using the toggle in the upper right corner of the table. Once you're in the hierarchy view, simply click and drag an item to another item to make it a child of the item you dragged it to. Take a look at the example below:

Grab the handle of your desired child item and then drag it towards the parent

If you want to remove an item under a hierarchy, simply drag it away from its parent. Take a look at the gif below:

Grab the handle and drag it away from the parent

And that's everything you need to know about the Content Items page. If you have further questions not discussed in this help article, don't hesitate to contact us!
