contentCloud | Create an authoring unit

An authoring unit is a unit that can be created using the contentCloud editor.

To create a authorship unit, you must have an "Author" role. The steps to follow are:

  1. Enter a project.
  2. Press the button.
  3. Select the "Create authoring unit" option.

Now, you need to select the template you want to use. When there is, in the right side panel, a brief description of the chosen template and its technical characteristics is displayed.

After choosing the template, press "NEXT".


The following shall be:

  • Select a representative image of the unit (optional). To add it, press the blue side button. It will take you to a screen where you can use preconfigured images from a gallery or use your own images, uploading them from your PC.
  • Enter the name of the unit.
  • Set your default language. The chosen language sets the language of the template elements (button name, menus, forward and backward options...).
  • Add tags (optional). Tags will allow us to search and locate the units more easily. To add a label we must write its text and press the ENTER key.

After entering this data, we can click, at the top of the screen:

  • SAVE. Create the drive and take us to its properties panel.
  • SAVE AND GO TO THE AUTHORSHIP. It creates the drive and allows us to directly access the contentCloud editor.

- Edit the unit (only if you have permission with Autor role)

- Modify the details of the unit.

- Modify the title of the unit

- Change the language of the unit.

- Add a new editing language (multi-language unit).
