The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
Calendar management is an underrated skill with big impact potential. Depending on how well you execute, it can critically impair your executive’s schedule or immensely increase efficiency and long-term sustainability. That’s why it’s imperative that you have as much information and insight into what makes up your boss’s calendar before even making the first decision.
When you manage their schedule, you are not just prioritizing their time, but also your executive’s energy and relationships. So, it’s imperative you navigate it right.
“Strategic calendar management should be recognized and valued as it is critical to the success of executives and organizations.”
That inspiring excerpt comes from none other than Tiffany Nguyen. She is the Manager of Administrative Operations at Onit, and has over 10 years of experience supporting CEOs across various industries.

Calendar analytics can take every executive assistant’s schedule management to a whole new level. So, we’re giving you a rundown on all there is to know about auditing your executive’s calendar and the steps you can follow to do it right.
WHAT IS CALENDAR ANALYTICS AND WHY DOES IT MATTER?
Executive calendar analytics is the analyzed data taken from your executive’s calendar that is used to do a data-driven approach to managing their schedule. Upon performing an audit, you will have a more in-depth idea of the aggregate pieces that drive your executive’s day-to-day priorities. The analysis results can be summarized through data illustration which will enable you to see exactly what meetings your executive is devoting majority of his/her time to.
Instead of trying to navigate their priorities daily, performing an audit can allow you to get out of the micro view and have a holistic, macro view of their calendar. It’s through this that you can easily identify weaknesses that might, otherwise, get missed when you’re in the weeds. This allows you to be more proactive, rather than reactive.
This insight is the key to effectively managing their schedule and making sure that you are creating enough breathing room, funneling your executive’s energy to high-value responsibilities, and preventing decision fatigue.

STEP 3: IDENTIFY PROBLEMS
Depending on the data you pull from the history of their schedule and insights you gather from interviews, you can identify the problems with your Executive’s calendar. To help you spot them easier, we’ve listed some common challenges that you might encounter:
