Updating Document Properties
There are two properties that you can change for a document:
- The Content Title
- The Teaser
The Content Title gives the document a more meaningful title when displayed in search results or when tagged in a list. By default, Sitecore will use the document file name as the Content Tile. Updating the Content Title will help with search results and is more user friendly when the document is viewed in a listing.
The Teaser is a brief description of the document. It is displayed under the Content Title when the document is tagged in agency navigation or list.
Here is what the document looks like when tagged in a list before a change to the Content Title and without a Teaser:
