Managing Content Structure

Content Hub has an easy to use 3 tiered structure called Tabs, Channels, and Stories. Tabs & Channels are managed by administrators in Platform Configuration. Here are some tips for setting up your structure and aligning the correct user population with the right information. 

 

Tabs

  • Highest level of organization within the platform
  • Tabs contain Channels
  • Multiple Channels can belong to a single Tab

Channels

When creating a Channel, admins must select the Channel Type and enter a Channel Name. The Channel Name is the display name that will be seen by all users who have permission to view this Channel in the structure; Channel names must be unique. Optionally, admins can enter a description field, cover art, choose the default sort order for Stories published in the Channel, hide the Channel, and encrypt files published within the Channel.

  • There are two types of Channels: Content Channels, and Feed Channels.
    • Content Channels are the default option and allow users to publish Stories
    • Feed Channels allow users to publish RSS Feeds
  • A single Channel can be used in multiple Tabs
  • Permissions are granted at the Channel level
    • When adding a Group to a Channel admins can give permission for that Group to view, publish, view & publish, or view & edit.
    • Only one permission set is allowed for each Group within a single Channel
      • Groups can have different permissions in different Channels
