Properties are a way to add data to different areas of your Creative Force instance. Editorial Project Properties allow you to enrich your projects with unique data that can be used in reporting and filtering.

Where to find Editorial Project Properties

Browse to the main menu in the top right corner of Gamma and select "Studio Settings". In the left sub-menu, click on the "Properties" tab. Here you will see a list of properties by entity - click the dropdown to reveal all of the available entities onto which you can add properties.

The following properties are unique to Editorial work in Creative Force:

  • Editorial Project Properties (max number of custom Editorial Project properties is 50)

  • Editorial Deliverable Properties

The following properties are shared between Ecomm and Editorial:

  • Product Properties

  • Sample Properties

  • User Properties

  • Location Properties

  • Container Properties


For Editorial, the maximum number of values in a List type property is 200. If the value exceeds this number, all the values in that list will not be synced.

Reserved Editorial Project Property Definitions

Reserved Properties are created by default within Creative Force. Some reserved Editorial Project Properties may be required for project creation, however, most are optional.

The table below outlines the different reserved properties for Editorial projects.

Property Name



Client ID


Identifies which client the project is associated with. Based on that selection, the system will assign the corresponding client code to the project.

Editorial Project Campaign


If a project is associated with a campaign, that information will go into this field.

Editorial Project Code


The system assigns a unique project code to every project.

Editorial Project DueDate UTC


Due date which will appear alongside the project, keeping your team aware of upcoming deadlines.

Editorial Project Name


Each of your projects must have a name before it can be added to Creative Force. This is the only required field.

Custom Editorial Project Properties

It’s possible to create any amount of custom properties on Editorial projects. The project properties that you create and save will also appear as empty fields to fill out when you are creating a new project.

Create a new custom property by hitting the blue button "Add Property”. Select the entity and property type you want to create and give it a name. Click Save.

A few common use-cases for Project Properties may include, Campaign Season (Spring, Summer, Winter, Fall), Holidays and Locations.

Note: Never change the name or delete a property that is already used in imported data.

Filter projects using Editorial Project Properties

The project properties that you create are used as column names in the Projects and Production tabs.

This means that you can use these properties to view and filter your Production and Project views using the filtering option for Project Properties. These views can be saved to more efficiently manage your work at a glance.
