Optional Fields

Decription The guide description is optional, but it's a good idea to add something. It can help students find the guide (more weight in search rankings than page content) as well as help them understand what's in the guide while browsing.
Redirect URL Leave the Redirect URL blank unless you are planning on using this guide as a placeholder and directing people to your old guide while you create the new one.
