Webinar: Creating and Using Custom Views in Title Management

Sometimes the amount of information in Title Management can be a bit overwhelming. What can you do if you only want to see certain pieces of information, and don’t need access to everything all the time? Page Views are the key.

Page Views allow you to customize what sections of information you want to see on each page, and the order in which they are displayed. Limiting your Views to only the information you care about can make your daily work much more efficient (less scrolling!) and can even speed up page loading times.

In this webinar, Joshua will walk you through the View creation and management process, showing you how to customize the Views of major pages like the Home screen and Product Summary, and also offering some practical recommendations and examples of custom Views that are helpful to other publishers. He will also touch briefly on other view types (such as search results and task views), which are covered in more detail in other webinars.
