A promo promotes an asset and appears in a containing page. Promo modules can be used as leads for articles, sections, tags, homepages, and more.
This topic describes how to create a shared promo that you can use in multiple pages. (If you want to create a one-off promo, see Creating a one-off module.)
To create a promo:
- In the header, click .
- From the Create list, select Promo module.
- Using the following table as a reference, complete the fields as needed.
- Complete your site's workflow and publish the page promo.
|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.|

For Internal and External selections, you can set whether the URL opens in the same window or in a new window.
|Title||This field defaults first to the internal asset's Promo Title (if available), and next to the asset's Title or Headline field. This title appears in the shared promo. You can modify the Title if necessary.|
This field defaults first to the internal asset's Promo Description (if available), and next to the asset's Description field. You can modify the Description if necessary.
|Image Override||This field defaults to the internal asset's Lead image (if any). This image appears in the shared promo. You can select a different image if necessary.|
