CMS: Managing Your Collection Content

9 min read
Manage your CMS (Content Management System) collection content from your site's dashboard or editor. Your collection consists of distinct fields and items, with each item's content stored in its fields. As you work within a table, list, or gallery layout, you can add or edit the fields and field values of your collection items. 

In this tutorial we use the default table layout of your collection. Keep in mind that only the list layout is available in single item collections. If you're using sandbox collections, make sure to access them from the CMS in your site's editor.
