Converting modules to one-off or shared


If you created an asset with a one-off module, you can convert it to a shared module for use in other assets.

To convert a one-off module to a shared module:

  1. Open the asset containing the one-off module.
  2. In the module's heading, click more_horiz.

    Open menu for converting module from one-off to shared

  3. In the menu that appears, click Convert to Shared.

Brightspot converts the one-off module to a shared module.


If you added a shared module to an asset, you may want to modify it. However, modifying the shared module modifies it for all other assets that use it. If you want to modify the module so that the changes apply only to the current asset, you can change the shared module to a one-off module. Doing this creates a true one-off module, and the shared module from which the new module originates is not affected.

To convert a shared module to a one-off module:

  1. Open the asset containing the shared module.
  2. In the module's heading, click more_horiz.

    Open menu for converting module from shared to one-off

  3. In the menu that appears, click Convert to (Module Type) (such as Convert to List). Brightspot converts the shared module to a one-off module and displays the corresponding form.
  4. Modify the module as required.
  5. Complete your site's workflow and publish the asset.
