Cosmic Blog Product Update: View as Editor
by Tony Spiro on February 20, 2019

We're happy to release a new feature that helps you collaborate with your team members easier using Cosmic. Introducing View as Editor.

As a developer, getting a CMS set up for your content creators requires a certain level of empathy. It's your job to make a technology choice that allows them to work in a comfortable environment and only see what they need to get their job done.

With the new "View as Editor" toggle now available in your Bucket for the developer and admin roles (see gif below), you can preview the entire Bucket experience from the vantage point of your content creators hiding all developer features and settings.


So now when you add your content creators in the editor role, you can be sure that you are giving them an intuitive and easy-to-use editing experience.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this and other ways to make it easier for teams of developers and content creators to collaborate. Join the conversation on Slack and reach out to us on Twitter.
