Experiment with a published edition's design

If you've already published your edition but would like to change its design without disrupting your subscribers' viewing experience, you can use access controls to test out a new design.

  1. In Google Producer, create a new section for testing purposes.
  2. Go to Grant access in the navigation menu.
  3. Select the test section you just created to view its access settings.
  4. Uncheck Anyone and check Managers.
  5. Click the Update button.

This will make the test section only visible to you and anyone you have added to the managers group. Feel free to make changes to the section, as these changes won't be exposed to your users.

Once you're happy with your test section, you can either change the access settings to make it visible to all users (if you're adding this section as a new one), or copy the template and display settings to your publicly viewable sections. Your subscribers will see the changes the next time they sync your edition.
