New interface features & updates

We’ve done a lot of tidying up visually for the CMS interface. Ultimately, it's about keeping things simple, clean and easy to use. Think of it as spring cleaning.

New look and feel

The file management area has been completely overhauled. Built from the ground up with a new interface, to be intuitive and easy to use, yet highly productive, even with most demanding asset usage.

New files area

Create and group new content together to be released all at once. Complete with access controls, allowing several people to work together seamlessly on a single campaign.

With versioning, assets can be altered independently of the state of the pages they are used on—file security improved. Similar to pages, users can publish and unpublish assets
