About Dynamic Content

Dynamic Content includes everything you need to create, schedule and publish content. It includes a content library that makes it easy to view and organize your content, and preview and editing features to help you get the content ready to be scheduled and published.

To help streamline the way you work, you can also perform some key asset management tasks from Dynamic Content too, such as uploading assets.

Each Dynamic Content user is granted permissions that control which tasks they can perform, and the hubs and repositories to which they have access. Permissions can be granted using the predefined roles: author, publisher, developer, admin or member. See Assigning roles.

Hub menu

At the top left of the window you’ll see a menu containing one or more hubs. A hub is the space within which content is created or scheduled. Hubs can contain multiple repositories and these are used to store your content and slots. The account structure page explains some of the different options for organizing your hubs and repositories.

If your account has multiple hubs you can switch between them using the hub menu as shown in the image below.

You can switch between hubs using the hub menu

Next to the hub menu you'll find the headings for the dashboard, content production, working with assets and scheduling. The headings that are shown, depend on your permissions and what is provisioned on your account.

  • The dashboard provides you with a configurable view of your content, allowing you to quickly focus on the items you need to work with. It consists of two views: Assigned content and Updates from Amplience. You can filter the assigned content by assignee, status and repository.

  • In the content tab you’ll see the content library, showing the content cards for content in the currently selected repository. From here you create items of content.

  • The assets tab is displayed if it has been provisioned to be available on your account. This tab enables you to do some asset management tasks, such as uploading assets. See the Assets tab page for more information.

  • The scheduling tab is where you’ll find the planning calendar, containing the events and editions for live content projects and those that are in preparation. From here you schedule your items of content to be published at specified locations and times.

  • If you're a developer you'll have access to the development tab from where you can access developer features such as creating content type schemas, managing content types and setting up integrations.
