What is a container in a Template?
Containers are rows or columns that contain any number of elements. To access the element settings of a container, locate the column or row Within the Template Editor the User is able to give these containers an identifier. This identifier is applicable for Triggers. Only named containers will be available to be configured in Triggers.
How to enable a container?
- Create a Template
- Add in rows and columns
- Add in elements
- Click on element settings
Why use containers?
Containers allow users to nest multiple enabled elements within a container. They can then use a trigger to enable/disabled the container based on the value of a condition element. Without this feature, users would need to add an action for every single element within the container in the trigger. This process is a time saver and a lot more user friendly.
I am naming my container but it isn’t saving - why?
A container will always accept an identifier except if there is a nested repeater within in or if the container contains elements used as Element Assignments (these can’t be used as a repeater or trigger).
I have removed the elements within a container, should I remove the container as well?
If you are removing all the elements attached to the container, it is best to remove the container they were sitting in.
If I move a container will the name hold?
Yes, the name will be attached to the container no matter where it is moved to.
Can I move a container from one page to another?
No. There is currently no way to move containers between pages.
