Creating a basic list


Basic lists contain assets of any content type. The assets in the list do not change unless you explicitly do so.

Note
This topic describes how to create a shared basic list that you can use in multiple assets. If you want to create a one-off basic list, see Creating a one-off module.

To create a basic list:

  1. In the header, click add.
  2. From the Create list, select List.
  3. Add assets to the list: scroll down to Items, and select Basic.
  4. Using the following table as a reference, complete the fields as needed.
  5. Complete your site's workflow and publish the basic list.
Field Description

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 To add assets to the list, select Basic and then click add_circle_outline.
