2. Create content items for all pages

The next step is to create content tasks (or content items as we call them) for every page on the website. You can even organize your pages in folders if it’s a large website project.

To create content items, go to the Content tab under the Project. Click on ‘+Create a content item’ > ‘Content’.

Clients or Copywriters not keen to come onboard your Workspace? No problem, share a public content page link.
