Guide to Editing FAQs

1. Enter CommonSpot and go to Manage : (Your FAQ page name)

  • The FAQ page will open.
  • Existing questions are displayed at the top of the page.
  • Fields for a new question and answer, along with a position field, are at the bottom of the page. An example of the page is below.


  • Note the Position column in the list of existing questions (circled in illustration above). The numbers there reflect the recommended practice of using increments of around 10 for the position of each new question. This makes re-ordering and adding new items in the future easier.
