Custom Editorial Deliverable Properties

It’s possible to create any amount of custom properties on Editorial projects. The deliverable 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.

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

Filter using Editorial Deliverables Properties

The Editorial Deliverable Properties that you set up are used as filters and column names in the Deliverables and Production tabs, as well as filters on the deliverables list within your projects.

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