What's in it for you
Great content libraries have a lot of material for many different needs, which can sometimes feel overwhelming for users. As an admin, you can tailor your content to best suit your users based on different criteria, such as where they are located, what language(s) they speak, and by commonly used tags. You can do this by creating Content Profiles.
Content Profiles differ from tags in that they include an umbrella of information including locale and language as opposed to tags, which are topics that can be applied to different assets for easy filtering. With these profiles, your users see the best content for them and it will save time for everything else on their plate.
By enabling dynamic content filtering on the Experience level, you can avoid duplicating Experiences in different languages for example, you could create one Experience where users only see the content relevant to them, based on their Content Profile. You can also do this when creating and distributing internal Pages. Dynamic content filtering, when enabled for Pages, allows filtering for all assets on the page for internal users.
Examples of Content Profiles you may create as an admin include by Language, Region, Country, or Product Lines. More in depth Content Profile examples may be by Persona (AE versus Solutions Engineer, Field Sales vs Internal Sales, etc), Market, Industries, Partner versus Direct Sales, and more.
Note: On the Showpad Windows Legacy app, Content Profiles are not applied on the created Pages. As a result, your users might see more content when opening a Page on an Atom, Mapper, and Classic Experience on the Windows Legacy app.
