Community Articles How to Add Custom Descriptions to Metafields

Because Cosmic can be used to handle complex data and content models, sometimes a quick tutorial when handing your editors the keys can go a long way. For screenshare tutorials that developers want to record and store as Training Videos, Cosmic offers the Training Videos Extension

Once development is complete, or at a resting place,  developers may want to leave helpful content-editing tips along the way in an effort to "streamline" (reduce) requests from the content team. You can add help text by clicking the "?" icon when you hover over any Metafield.  The text will be available to content managers when they hover the "?" icon.


How to Add Custom Descriptions to Metafields



  1. Navigate to the Object you want to leave a content-editing tip on
  2. Hover on the ? icon on the Metafield you choose
  3. Leave your tip and Publish for content editors' in the future



I hope that you've found this tutorial helpful. If you have questions or comments about Content Editor Features in the Cosmic system, I'd love to hear about them. You can refer to my Cosmic Profile for additional content on how to intuitively navigate the Cosmic Dashboard.
