Back to Glossary
Button that cancels changes made to a Profile. CAUTION – Does not delete newly created Elements. Located at bottom right of Profile view.
Cancel Check Out
Button that cancels all changes, and also the Check Out of the Story or Media. Available at the Story/Media Profile level. CAUTION – If you have never checked in a piece of Content (Version = 0) the Story or Media will be Deleted forever. This is the only instance in which a Story or Media Element can NEVER be recovered. Located at bottom right of Profile view.
Button and dropdown used together to Check In Stories and Media, while moving them to another Desk, the Shelf, or Web Server. Very useful for quickly Publishing changes. CAUTION – The tendency is to use the Check In drop down with the Save button. Such a combination does not work. The Check In drop down MUST be used in conjunction with the Check In Button. Located at the bottom left corner of the Story/Media Profile view.
Check boxes and buttons that work together to remove Elements from a Story. Similar behavior to Delete this Profile. Located on the right side of Profile view.
Delete this Profile
Check box used in combination with the Save or Apply Changes button to remove an Element or Story. Will not work with the Cancel button. When used on a Story Profile, will NOT delete the story from the Web Server. See Expire Date. Located at bottom of Profile view.
Button used in conjunction with the Position drop down boxes above it to move Elements up or down the page. Set the Position drop down of the Element you want to move to the appropriate number, and all other Position drop downs adjust for your changes. Higher numbers appear lower on the page. Works best at the Story Profile level. Located on right side of Profile view.
Button that rolls Content back to a prior version. Choose Versions from drop down immediately to the right of the Revert button, and view prior versions or see differences between them with the View and Diff links respectively. Located at bottom right of Story/Media Profile view.
Button that saves changes to an Element Profile or Story/Media Profile, and moves user up a level in the Content Editing Hierarchy. For example, clicking Save at the Story Profile level will save changes and move the user to the Workspace level. Useful for moving from an Element Profile to a Story Profile when the user wants to Check In or Publish a Story. Located at bottom of Profile view.
Save and Stay
Button that saves changes to an Element Profile or Story/Media Profile, and keeps user at same level in the Content Editing Hierarchy. For example, clicking Save and Stay at the Element Profile level will save changes and keep the user editing the Element. Useful when a user wants to save changes and Preview a Story, but keep working on their Content. Located at bottom of Profile view.
