Editing Your ASE Content

Edit content in the platform

Wahoo! You're ready to customize your content.
The best-written mobile content is succinct and energetic. Brevity is important, as almost all students will receive and read the content on their smartphone (as a reminder, the message and link are sent via SMS), and most of these students are accustomed to short-form, high-quality content. As a rule of thumb, see if you can make your point in a phrase or sentence, rather than a paragraph (like this one).
It's important to understand the relationship between the different parts that will make up what your students see.
Your students will scroll through a content card. A card is made up of multiple content blocks (ex. Outlining accepted student next steps.) Content blocks are made up of components. For example, an image or a button. Watch the video below for a quick recap.

 When you click into a template, you’ll first see the “Details” section
  • Under “Card name,” name your content card. This won’t be student-facing, but will help your team stay organized. This will also be the name that displays in the Activity section.
  • We recommend including the name of the audience or purpose of the card, to help distinguish your content cards.
  • After the edits are made in the “Details” section, go to the “Front” of the card
  • Under “Content,” you’ll be able to select the formatting for the front of the content card. A preview of those options is on the right-hand side.
  • We recommend uploading an image for the front of the card. When you select “upload image,” you’ll be able to choose an image from your computer. Keep in mind that the image on the front of the card will also appear at the top of the back of the content card.
  • If you would like there to be a color overlay, name the color in the “Color” section. You can use a hex code or color names. Then, use the sliding bar until the color overlay is to your liking.
  • In the “Text” section, you’ll be able to customize the Lead In, Headline, and Subhead components on the front of the card. The Headline will also appear on the top of the back of the card. You can also customize if the text should be light or dark.
  • After you’ve edited the “Front”, go to the “Destination”.
 You can think of “Destination” as the back of the card. This is the content your students will see when they open the link from the SMS. 
  • If you’re using a template, you’ll see a variety of components on the left hand side, and the preview on the right.
    •  To edit a component: Click into the component, and make edits as necessary.
    •  To move a component: Click the “hamburger menu” on the component and drag and drop into the desired place.
    •  To add a new component:
      • Click the black plus button and select your component from the menu. Your new component will appear at the bottom.
      •  If you’d like to add a new component in the middle of existing content, click on the 3 vertical dots on a component and select “Insert,” and select your component from the menu. You can also swipe right on the component and then click on the green plus button, and select your component from the menu.
  •  To delete a component: Click on the 3 vertical dots on a component and select “Remove.” You can also swipe left on the component and click the red trash can icon.
