Projects help define the purpose of your content. They are made up of folders representing the hierarchy of your content and items, which are the content pieces. You may have a project to manage "Articles" and another to manage "Email campaigns."

Once you've successfully logged in, you will see the Project View. Select an existing project or create a new project. You have access to example projects to explore some of them. 


If you do not see the button in your Content Workflow Dashboard, you must contact your Admin to enable create projects permission in your account.

Add Assets to Items

Create a Structure

Items are structured using fields. Use text, asset fields, and more to build the structure of your item, and include instructions and guidelines to guide your users. Learn more about structures and how to build a structure.  

Create a Template

Templates are used to help save time when creating new items. A template determines the different content fields required on an item. Fields can be customized to include different rules and guidelines. This makes it easy to ensure content always meets the exact requirements and helps authors and contributors know what is expected. You can learn how to create templates and manage templates.

You can customize (if your plan allows) and configure different workflows for each project or apply a Workflow template. You can learn more about creating workflows.
