Customizing a site's Quick Start widget


You can add content types, content templates, and assets to a site's Quick Start widget. All editors working on that site inherit this customization, unless their role or individual dashboard has a different Quick Start widget.

To customize a site's Quick Start widget:

  1. Select menu> Admin > Sites & Settings > Sites, and select the site whose Quick Start widget you want to modify.
  2. Click search, and in the search field enter Quick Start Settings.

  5. From the Content Templates list, select the content templates you want to include in the Quick Start widget.
  6. Under Edit Existing Contents, do the following:

    1. Click add_circle_outline. A selection field appears.
    2. Click search. A content picker appears.
    3. Search for and select the assets you want to include in the Quick Start widget.
    4. Close the content picker.
