Brightspot CMS User Guide

Configuring Quick View at the site level

You can configure a quick view for items in the Recent Activity widget and in search interfaces like the search panel and content pickers. Quick view provides an at-a-glance view of an asset's fields as well as a preview of what the asset looks like on your site. See Using Quick View for more information.

To configure Quick View:

  1. Click menu > Admin > Sites & Settings.
  2. In the Sites widget, select the site for which you want to enable this feature.
  3. Click search, located to the left of more_horiz, and type Quick View.
  4. Under Add Quick View Type Settings, click add_circle_outline.
  5. From the Content Type reference field, select which content types are included in Quick View.
  6. From the Fields reference field, select which fields of the selected content types are displayed in the Quick View.
