Working with Views

What are Custom Content Views?

'Custom Views'

Custom Views allow you to view content in a unique way that suits your content workflow. They are custom defined by the user and can be kept private or shared across teammates in the project.

Creating a Content View

To create a content view, you'll want either add a filter or edit the column structure. You can do one or both, make your view the way you'd like, then click the button labeled Save Content View in the header.

From here you will be prompted to add a name, and description. Optionally, you can choose to make a Custom View private and/or inside of a view group.

Content View Groups

'View Groups'

Also known as folders allow editors to organize types of content in uniquely intuitive groups.

To create a view group, in the bottom left-hand corner of the content sidebar there is a plus-folder icon. Clicking it will prompt you to to create a name and description as well as give you the decision to make the group of content views private.

Creating Content Connect Views

To specify a Connect View for each role and Model in your project, head into the Schema View and select the model for which you want to set a Default Connect View.

Select Content Connect View

Clicking the "Select Content Connect View" Button brings up a modal, in which you can set a Role Default View from the existing Connect Views.

Set Connect View Per Role

Viewing Content Connect Views

Once you have set your desired Connect Views per role, the user will be presented with it as soon as they open the modal to Connect two entries. For example the user created a new Post entry and now wants to connect an existing Author entry to it.

Select Author

If you modify one of the available Connect Views, e.g. changing the filters or column configuration, you can save this view as your own Personal Connect View. Once you select the Role based View again, you can roll back to this one too.
