We realize that there are some terms that are unique to Enablix, so we thought we'd give you a tour of some of the most common terms and concepts that you'll see when using Enablix or reading our help articles. Don’t see a feature or concept you think should be a part of our glossary? Feel free to send us a note and we’ll be happy to add it!
Asset - An Asset is an individual unit of content. For example, if you add a case study file to Enablix, that is considered a single content asset. Since Enablix supports files, URLs, and text, you can have non-file content assets. You can also have a content asset which includes both a file and a URL. For example, you captured a webinar on Enablix and include the PowerPoint file and the URL of the audio recording.
Content Type - A Content Type, as its name implies, defines the type of an asset. Every asset in Enablix has a Content Type. A Content Type helps your team members find information easily. When you initially sign up, we start with commonly used Content Types. As your usage grows, you can add your own Content Types and expand your Content Type library.
Attributes - The structure of a Content Type. When creating a new Content Type, you will assign the Content Type's Attributes. Attributes can be many things but common ones are: File and or URL for the asset, Description (internal explanation to the user the purpose of this asset), Excerpt (external explanation to the audience the purpose of this asset), etc. Attributes are customizable.
Metadata - We collectively refer to Content Types, Categories, Labels, and Properties as Metadata in Enablix.
Categories - Categories are the different ways you segment your company's business. For instance, if you are a B2B software product company, you may have multiple solutions. And, you may be targeting different geographies and industries. In this example, your categories are Solutions, Regions, and Industries.
Labels - Labels are individual values in a defined Category. Let's take the example of Industries Category. Say you sell your solution in HealthCare, Financial Services & Retail Industries. Then your Labels are HealthCare, Financial Services, and Retail for the Industries Category.
Properties - Properties store information about your company's marketing's and sales processes. Some of the commonly used properties are Business Roles, Image Types, Case Study Types, etc. You can add new properties and edit property values.
Access - Access is an attribute of an asset that allows Enablix customers to define access values for that asset. Marketers and other application owners may want to restrict access to an asset. They can use Access attribute to define the access for a particular asset. Companies can define access values that suit their business requirements.
Default Shareable Value - Default Shareable Value can be Externally Shareable or Internal & Confidential. This makes it so users can or can not share assets outside of the organization.
Links - Links in Enablix are trackable URLs for content assets. Marketers and sellers can share assets with their prospects and customers by sharing links to the content assets.
Content Kits - A Content Kit is a special kind of Content Asset that is a collection of other content assets. The Content Type of an Asset determines whether or not it is a Content Kit. For example, a Sales Kit is a Content Kit. Similarly, a Sales Playbook is a Content Kit. But a Case Study is not a Content Kit.
Content Page - An external facing web page constructed with external facing assets. Sales and marketing users use content pages to share content externally with prospects, customers, and other constituents. Example - Account Hubs, Sell Pages, and Customer Hubs.
Thumbnail - Thumbnail is a thumbnail image of a Content Asset. Enablix generates thumbnail images, where possible. It also has a library of default thumbnail images if it cannot generate one. You can configure certain Content Types to support a custom thumbnail image.
Asset Preview (or simply Preview) - Enablix generates previews for file, URL and text content. This allows users to review the content of a file or a URL without downloading/opening the file/URL.
Web View - Web View is used in the context of Links for file-based assets. A Web View is a web-based view of a file asset that a user can share with a prospect or a customer. A Web View helps Enablix track content engagement.

Feedback - Feedback is a specific type of comment that Enablix supports to track feedback from the sales and other team members.
System Role - System role defines the system rights for a user.

Additionally access values can restrict or permit access to content assets based on a user's system roles.
