Promo module fields
|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.|
Select one of the following:
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.|
|Description||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.|
|Call To Action Button Text||Enter text appearing on the call-to-action button. This text is visible to the visitors to your site.|
|Category||Enter text to override what appears as the eyebrow text when this promo appears on a page.|
|Anchor||Modify the anchor to something that would make sense when appearing in an Anchor field's drop-down menu on another asset. This allows you to directly link to this module in another asset. Being specific makes it easier to identify in a list of other anchors.|
|Hide Description||Toggle on to hide the description of the asset contained in the list module. For example, toggling on this setting displays the Headline of an article, but hides the Description of an article contained in the list module.|
|Hide Image||Toggle on to hide the image included on the asset contained in the module.|
|Hide Publish Date||Toggle on to hide the publish date of the assets included in the module.|
|Hide Category||Toggle on to hide the category of the asset included in the module.|
