    A confirmation message displays letting you know you have successfully updated the content library.

To send the updated version to the Sailthru Content Library, click Options > Update Content Library. You must do this each time you make published changes to an asset.

Once an asset has been submitted to Sailthru successfully, The View in Sailthru option is available when you click Options.
