Adding and deleting content items

After defining your project's content structure through content types, you can start creating content in your project. If you decide that you don't need the content item anymore, you can delete it.

See how to create content items inside the app.

    Creating content items

    To create a content item:

    1. From the app menu, choose Content & Assets .
    2. Click Create new on the right.
    3. Choose a content type.

    A new Untitled content item is automatically created in your project.

    Now, continue with your content:

    1. Enter a name for the content item.
    2. (Optional) Fill in the elements defined by the content type.
    3. (Optional) Assign the item to the person who will continue working on it.

    Each change you make is saved automatically.

    Tip: You can quickly create another item based on the same content type by clicking More actions > Duplicate > Empty.

    Keeping track

    To quickly find elements that need your attention in the current content item, you can use the "left to complete" indicator shown on the Details sidebar. Clicking Content details at the top right of an item opens the sidebar where you can click on Elements left to complete to be taken to the incomplete elements.

    What's an incomplete element? This includes elements that:

    • Are set as required but empty.
    • Do not meet a set limitation, such as the maximum number of characters for a text element.

    Deleting content items

    If a content item has variants created for multiple languages, you can only delete the variant for one given language at a time and the item will return to a Not translated status.

    Note: Deleted content items cannot be restored.

    To delete one or more content items from your project:

    1. From the app menu, choose Content & Assets .
    2. Select content items using the checkboxes next to their names.
    3. Click More actions .
    4. Choose Delete.
