Global data is a powerful and time-saving feature that allows you to reuse common and important business information as short cuts, saving you time when adding and editing your website content.
With global data you only need to enter the information once. The information will then be automatically populated in all the relevant modules on your site that refer to these global data nodes.
What's more, when you make an edit to any piece of global data, this update automatically displays anywhere this data item is placed within the website. Read all about Global Data here!
