Content Explorer
The Content Explorer is the main administrative surface of Sense/Net. Here you can manage all content in one, simple and quick user interface. All operations on all content are accessible here in a uniform way. The Content Explorer reflects the physical content repository structure. Some features of Sense/Net (e.g. adding new users, groups, page templates, skins, etc) are available only through the Content Explorer. If you are a power user, you will spend most of your time in the Content Explorer. It is your ultimate content management tool.
