Dynamic List module
Dynamic lists contain assets of any content type. The assets in the list change depending on the sort and filtering criteria you configure.
This topic describes how to create a shared dynamic list that you can use in multiple assets. If you want to create a one-off dynamic list, see Creating a one-off module.
To create a dynamic list:
- In the header, click .
- From the Create list, select List Module.
- Using the following table as a reference, complete the fields as needed.
- Complete your site's workflow and publish the dynamic list.
|Internal Name||Enter an internal name for this asset. Brightspot uses this name internally, such as in the search panel and recent activity widget. This name is not visible to visitors to your site.|
|Title||Enter a title. This title is visible to the visitors to your site.|
|Description||Enter a description. This description is visible to the visitors to your site.|
|Items||Click , and select Dynamic.|
|Types||Select the content types included in this list.|
|Sort||Select the sort order for this list.|

|Pinned Items||Select assets that always appear first in this list. For information about pinning items, see Understanding dynamic list settings.|

When setting up an internal or external call to action, you have the option to set how the link will behave.
|Call To Action Button Text||Enter text appearing on the call-to-action button. This text is visible to the visitors to your site.|
The following illustration shows just one example of how Brightspot renders a dynamic list. The assets appearing in the dynamic list change depending on the list's configuration and assets you add or archive in Brightspot.
