Reusable content is convenient when working with multiple pages that require the exact same information. Assets allow for the creation and use of reusable content such as text, images, media, code blocks, managed forms, image galleries, polls, and comments. The use of assets gives users a way to easily insert a block of content to any number of pages via the WYSIWYG Editor or Source Editor. This also allows for content to be edited once, and after being republished become updated on all subscribing pages. This makes it easy and convenient to update common content such as a department phone number, an image, or simplify form creation. The creation, editing, and management of assets is integrated into the permission system and can be modified with the access settings.
