Dynamic Content hub
The space within which content is produced and scheduled.
Where all assets, including images and video are stored in the Amplience platform.
The space within which content is produced and scheduled.
Hubs can contain multiple repositories. Customers may have multiple hubs and access permissions can be set for each hub. Users may be provided with access to one or more hubs.
Content cannot be shared between hubs. In cases where content needs to be shared (between brands, for example), that content would need to be organised into multiple repositories within one hub. In cases where multiple brands do not share content, then multiple hubs could be used to maintain separation.
A collection of a particular type of data, such as content.
As you can control which content types are made available to each repository, it is possible to have multiple content repositories, each with a different set of content types available to use to create content.
A schema that defines a type of content to be created, including its structure and format.
Content types are defined using the JSON schema standard.
Content types are added to hubs then associated with repositories. This allows you to create your own library of content types and share them wherever they are required.
A notification that is triggered when a certain action occurs in Dynamic Content. Developers create webhooks that subscribe to selected webhook events.
An organisational grouping containing one or more editions.
Events have a start and end date and will usually represent a major campaign such as Black Friday or New Year sales. Editions are scheduled individually within an event.
While an event will generally represent a campaign, it can also act as a grouping to organise any collection of content changes, such as a website refresh, for example. Events can contain many editions, each consisting of content releases used for a specific purpose.
Events can optionally contain an attachment, which may be useful for including additional information such as a project brief and is currently specified using a URL.
There can be many events on your timeline.
A collection of content that is scheduled to be published at a specified time.
An edition contains one or more slots to which you add the content to be published.
Editions have a scheduled start and end date / time and often represent a set of content updates for a specific purpose. For example, a New Year sales event may include separate editions for teaser banners, a womenswear campaign and a free shipping promotion.
Editions can be scheduled to go live at the same time as each other or at different times, however different content items cannot be published to the same slot at the same time.
A container for content, representing an area of a website, app or other channel such as an in-store display.
A slot might represent an entire page of your website, or a particular area of the page.
Content is scheduled by adding slots to an edition and choosing the content to be published to these particular slots. When an edition goes live, the chosen content will be published into the specified slots.
This allows content planners to control what content is published, to what location and at what time.
The list of slots available to add to an edition.
The library can be opened when an edition is created, viewed or edited. Slots will generally be created when your integrations are set up or updated and stored in a repository marked for that purpose.
By creating snapshots, Dynamic Content allows planners to be certain that the content, including any linked items, they preview and schedule is exactly the version of the content that will appear when the edition goes live.
The edition status can be: draft, scheduled, expired or published. A newly created edition has a status of draft and is set to scheduled when it it is scheduled for publication. Once the end date of an edition has passed, it is set to expired.
The set of rules that determine whether an edition can be scheduled.
An error state that must be resolved before an edition can be scheduled.
A condition where an edition may be scheduled, but a warning is shown to let you know about possible unexpected behaviour.
Possible overlapping content:If two editions are scheduled to publish content within one hour of each other, you will be warned that, if the editions share the same slots, content may be overwritten.
UI related terms
The view in which events and editions are managed.
Users may choose to show events and editions in a calendar view or as a list. Each view provides equivalent functionality, so you can choose the most appropriate way to view, edit and schedule your events and editions.
The view in which content items and slots are created, edited and previewed.
Content created and edited in the production view can be saved to an edition to make it available in the planning view. The content can then be added to a slot within an edition and scheduled for publication when the edition goes live.
Content preview app
A representation of how content will appear on your website or app at a particular point in time.
Content previews are opened by choosing a date in the planning calendar and are displayed in a separate window.
You can create your own preview app that simulates your website or app and provides an accurate view of how your content will appear on the specified date. The preview can be as advanced as required and can even be a complete simulation of your web site, app or other delivery channel.
Previews can only be displayed for dates in the future.
A preview of a content item. Visualizations are available for content in the Content Library and for content added to slots in an edition.
The environment that content previews are displayed within.
This environment is specified in the hub settings window and will generally be set up at the beginning of a project.
