On the CMS Desk -> Content -> List tab, you can see an overview of documents placed under the currently selected document in the content tree. You can filter the displayed pages using the filter above the list.


The Document name column displays the names of the documents in the currently edited culture. If the document's version in this culture does not exist, the column displays the name from the default culture with the default culture code appended in brackets. Document status icons are displayed next to document names in this column, the same as in the content tree. To learn more about these icons, please refer to Content management -> Editing content -> Document status icons.


The Languages column displays the status of the document's particular language versions. More information about language statuses can be found in Development -> Multilingual content -> Managing multilingual websites -> Language status overview.

The following operations can be performed for individual documents:


Edit Edit - by clicking the icon, you get redirected to the document's Edit -> Page tab in the currently selected culture.

Clicking a document's name selects it in the content tree, which causes the list to display the documents found under it.
