What is

Project Management

?

Project management [ˈpräˌjekt manijmənt], noun: 

"The practice of applying knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to complete a project according to specific requirements. It comes down to identifying the problem, creating a plan to solve the problem, and then executing on that plan until the problem has been solved." 

According to this definition by Wrike, project management is most likely a part of your job and a big part of your day to day work. Sadly, to a lot of people, project management can seem pretty daunting, especially if your tackling it on your own. You might hear project management terms like “agile” or “scrum” or “waterfall” or “kanban” and stress that you don’t have it down yet. Fortunately, we have put together a comprehensive list of resources to help you understand and improve your efforts to become a project management professional.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
