          4. Follow the instructions in the pop-up dialog

        8.  The rest of the document is up to you.  Delete the line and all content below the header and replace with relative product information.  It is recommended that you at least include the following information:

        • Product Description
        • Product Images
          • Select the camera camera.pngicon  from the toolbar to insert images.
        • Key Specifications

        11.  In the Tags field enter the keywords to help people find your product.  Recommended tags include product type (e.g. JTAG, Mass_Interconnect), company name, and application/industry (e.g. Automotive, Aerospace)


        12. (Important) Expand the Collaboration Options section and select the option for just you to edit the document.  Alternatively, you can allow additional users the ability to edit the document.  This option is useful if you want to allow others in your company to update the product page.

        13.  Click the Publish button to finalize the creation of your product page.  Your page will be reviewed by the PXI Community administrator and if found appropriate, published to the website.
