A Tipe Document combines similar stuff together. Think of a Google Doc or Word doc — same concept, but upgraded and more flexible. It's where you'd write a blog post, include relevant images, refer to other Documents, write in markdown, include maps, and more.
Tipe Documents are made up of blocks to store text and other data.
- Name: This is the name of the Document. They don't have to be unique and can include spaces. Use them to visually identify documents in the dashboard.
- Blocks: Blocks are the single components that store text, media, date pickers, etc. in one place to make up a Document.
- Template: A template is a reusable Document that allows you to easily create many Documents with the same blocks.
When you are ready to make a Document available via the Tipe API, click Publish in the upper right of the dashboard. You can Unpublish a Document at any time.
Finding a Document ID
You can find your Document ID in several places:
- The Options menu
- Near the top of a Document
- In the API tab
From outside of a Document, you can click on the three dots icon and copy the ID from the menu:
