  • overview the list of slots;
  • activate or deactivate slots.
  • overview the list of CMS blocks assigned to a slot;
  • assign CMS blocks to a slot;
  • change the order of CMS blocks assigned to a slot;
  • delete a CMS Block assignment;
  • view an assigned CMS Block;
  • select the pages in which a CMS Block is displayed.
