Start Creating Content
1. Create a task, go to the Content tab and click on Start Writing.
2. The click on the Start Writing prompt leads you to the Text Editor.
3. Add Title and start writing. You can also add featured images, sources, languages, and more under the ellipsis menu by clicking on Document Info. You will be able to optimize content and leave comments under this Document Info panel.
4. You can edit your article using the toolbar options that appear on the top of the Text editor, including changing the text size and color.
5. Click on the "Done" button when writing is complete and see the last edit time at the bottom of the editor.
Collaborate on Content (via Concurrent Editing)
Users are now able to collaborate on a single piece of content in real-time. Your avatars will appear at the top of the page and the text will show who is typing. This works across the Text Editor including title, body, author, source, and more! (Note: if Track Changes is turned on/off, it will remain that way for all users at the same time).
Embed Images, Videos & Social Posts
You can embed images in the Text Editor. You can add Stock Images or upload them directly from this task, your library, or Your Computer.
You can also Embed videos in the Text Editor. For Embedding videos from Youtube, you can simply copy the URL and paste it into the text editor. For embedding non-YouTube hosted videos, you can use the Text Editor's source code editor. You can embed videos into articles by using simple HTML5 markup but at first, you need to upload the video to CMP Library.
Here is a an example of the HTML markup needed to embed a video:
<video preload="none" width="100%" controls>
<source src="insert Download Link" type="video/mp4">
Your browser doesn't support the HTML5 video tag.
The overall procedure has been outlined in detail in the GIF shared below:
For the best experience, be sure to include the preload="none" attribute, as shown above, to prevent unnecessary video buffering.
You can embed web documents such as Google Sheets or InDesign within the Text Editor and work on them directly from the editor. Click on the embed iframe button, add the URL of the document and choose the dimensions of your embedded file. This process is demonstrated in the following video.
If you want other users to be able to edit or view the document that you have embedded here, the URL that you supply for the Embed iFrame should be a URL that is shared by those users. Any shared web URL that uses the browser's SSO capabilities can be available within an embed iFrame, but users who have not or cannot authenticate to that URL will get an error.
When you're creating and editing content in the Text Editor, Welcome will automatically save each unique version of the article that you have worked on or you can press Save Draft.
Clicking on the clock-shaped icon should bring up all your draft versions:
On the left-hand side of the page, you'll notice a timeline of your versions with a timestamp of when that version was created as well as the user who worked on the edits. Every time you exit the text editor by clicking "Done", Welcome will save a new version of the article automatically.
On each specific version, you can click the "Preview" button to see that version of the article. If you'd like to make that your current version, simply click Restore.
The In-line Commenting feature is meant to help users collaborate on written content in Welcome . You can easily review content, suggest changes, and have conversations with all the necessary context.
Users can highlight the word or section for which they want to provide instruction or feedback and click the "Add Comment" button. Like with other comment sections in our platform, you can @mention any user in Welcome , so they know the comments pertain directly to them and will receive an alert/notification for immediate action.
You can resolve a comment that is no longer active. If you want to view it again, you can select the Show Resolved checkbox and click Re-open if you want to make the comment active again.
