Shared vs. one-off modules

Modules can be either shared or one-off.

  • Shared modules appear in more than one asset. You can create a single module and then incorporate it into many assets. If needed, you can override field values in shared modules to customize their appearance in a given asset.
    Shared modules are not owned by the assets in which they appear, and as such, changes you make to them are saved and immediately rendered, both in Brightspot and on your site.
  • One-off modules appear only in their containing asset. You can create one-off modules to customize layout or content for a single containing asset.
    One-off modules are created and edited from the containing asset in which they are embedded; as such, to save changes to a one-off module, you must also save the containing asset.
Our robust, flexible Design System provides hundreds of pre-built components you can use to build the presentation layer of your dreams.
