Brightspot CMS User Guide

Production guides

Production guides are series of field descriptions that exist on pages inside of Brightspot to provide contextual help to writers as they create content. Production guides can be used to provide granular instructions to editors about fields, such as:

  • Whether the field is optional.
  • How many characters the field supports.
  • Strategic guidance on tense, word usage, and more.
  • General information about the fields included on the page.

Production guides can be enabled at any level of the hierarchy and will be inherited by lower levels. For example, if the feature is enabled at the global level, it will be enabled at the site, user, and profile levels.

Production guide fields are editable only to users with the right permissions. For details, see Enabling editing permissions for production guides.
