How To Use Content Editor In Sharepoint

We’d love it if you credited our website,, if you use our image.

As you can see, content editors have some pretty powerful features. You can edit almost any type of document or file format, such as PowerPoint presentations, PDFs, Excel documents, and more!

They also have several interface modes that they can use. Some are full screen, while others are limited to certain areas of the item being edited.

And don’t forget about all those formatting tools like bold, italic, underline, and more!

Overall, these apps offer very robust functionality that can be used for both personal and work-related files. Now let’s take a look at how to use them.

Decide what you want to create

One of the most important things to know about the content editor is that it can be used for almost anything! The content editor can be used as an interactive widget, tool or feature within your sharepoint site.

It depends on how you use it really! For example, you could use it as a simple text box to enter some basic information and then save it as a new item (think email template). You could also upload files through the content editor, link documents together or even create pages using only content from another page or document!

The possibilities are endless! But remember, the more advanced features require additional permissions which mean that not everyone will have access immediately.

Plan out each page

When creating an article or any type of content within SharePoint, you will need to plan out what element it will contain before writing a word.
For example, if your article is about how to use Office 365, then you would have to make an introduction, talk about why Microsoft Office is important, and then conclude with steps to using Office 365.

You could not write just “Office” without explaining what that means. So making sure to organize your articles into elements first makes the process flow more naturally.

This also helps keep yourself organized as you create content for different posts and pages.

Work with collaborators

In addition to creating, editing, and deleting content, there are several other ways you can use the Content editor in Office 365. Some of these features allow you to work collaboratively on documents or pages.

You can add people as authors so they can edit and update their own part of the document. Or you can invite users to contribute content by allowing them to enter text or include pictures or videos.

These collaborations occur within your organization’s SharePoint group. You will need to give each person access using either Team Collaboration or Individual User Permissions. More information about that is available here.

There is an easy way to do this. Go into Settings > Account and then Manage Users. Look for “Add user permissions” under Group settings.

Organize your site structure

After you have created at least one content type, it is time to organize your sites! Because we are organizing our sites now, this is an excellent opportunity to go back and review our previous sections.

We discussed creating a new document or list first before adding content types. Now that we have organized our content, it is time to link these documents together using relationships.

Relationships exist within content types. For example, if we wanted to create a posts and pages content type where posts can be linked to other posts or pages, then we would need to add a relationship.

This way, users do not have to create another content item to link to another page or article, they can just use the related drop down menu. More advanced ways to manage navigation with sharepoint content hierarchies includes changing how links look and what order they appear in. This is something that most people learn as they progress deeper into the platform.

So now that you know how to use content editor in SharePoint, let’s take a closer look at some examples of organization.

Edit templates

In addition to being able to edit content outside of SharePoint, you can also edit the look and feel of your site by editing its template.

A template is an XML document that defines the color scheme, font style, and other graphical elements for your website. By changing the theme or template of your site, you can achieve different looks such as ones with shades of blue, green, and black.

You can find all of the template files for your site under Settings > Theme settings > Themes. To upload a new file, go into List Template and Upload a New File, then choose Files from the Source type.

Create and edit pages

A content editor is very similar to an author of a document or blogger that writes for a website. It can be used to create, update, and delete any kind of page within your site!

Content editors are typically given permission to write new posts or modify existing ones, but they do not have access to design tools. That is where us web designers come in!

By integrating content editors with our share-focused platform, you allow them to contribute more than just writing. They can add rich media such as photos, videos, charts, and other graphics to enhance their articles.

They can also include additional features like polls, comments, and interactive components. All of these additions make it easier for people outside of your company to contribute and participate in your community.

This article will go into detail about how to use content editors in SharePoint. From adding users to creating and editing pages, we’ll take some time to step through each feature.

Manage lists of items

In addition to creating and editing individual pages, you can also create new list instances or edit an existing one. To do this, you will need to use the content editor web part first!

The content editor is very similar to the classic text editor that most people are familiar with. It has some additional features that make it more powerful for business users.

For example, you can add links to documents or websites as well as check off boxes to indicate whether or not an item belongs to a checklist or task. This helps organize your lists quickly and efficiently.

There are also several pre-made templates available from the content editor library. These include email templates, color schemes, and survey forms, among others. You can easily replace parts of the template with different information such as company names and logos.

These are just a few examples of what you can do with the content editor.

Publish sites

Another way to create new pages is via the content editor. You can choose whether you want your page to be listed under lists or libraries, as well as what level of access it has.

To add a new item using the content editor, first click “Library” then “Create a Library.” Once that is done, you will get a list of templates. Find one you like and use the content editor to edit it!

Your editors may feel more familiar with this method than creating an app or listing items under a library.
