Enable Smart Content on Rich Text in Custom Modules
Since the addition of custom modules into the Design Manager Tool, templates are being built using these custom modules. But these modules does not support smart content what makes its use limited of specific. ie: Best custom module idea is a Banner module, but a banner is the first place where smart content needs or can be applied. I understand the coding complexity for making the custom module entirely smart but It will be more than enough if we can add Smart Content tool into rich text modules in custom modules.
Good news! We are starting an early beta for Smart Content support for all modules! If you're interested in joining the beta, please DM me with your name, email address, and portal ID and I can add you to the beta.
This is something we're currently considering adding, but will require a bit of a revamp of smart content's UI. We're going to thing through how the UI and underlying structure need to change and I'll plan on posting here with updates!
Re: Enable Smart Content on Rich Text in Custom Modules - changed to: In Planning
Update: Smart Content for Custom Modules fields is currently in development. Our goal is to release Smart Content fields in Custom Modules as well as a more robust and useful way to report on Smart Content. Recently we released Smart Content reporting into BETA which is the first step to releasing additional functionalty at the module level. As of right now we do not have a timeline for when Smart Content fields will be released into BETA.
