On the room homepage, click on View Content Library to visit the content library for a particular room.
Alternatively, you may locate and click on Content Library on the left sidebar and locate the room folder to access the contents within the room.

Alternatively, click on the New button.
Select Type from the list of options given in the dropdown.
This will open up an empty typepad in a content editor.
You can click on the back button to return to the content library.
To rename the typepad, simply click on the file name to toggle the input field. You can name your typepad by typing in the text box. When you are done renaming, simply press enter/return on your keyboard or click anywhere outside the input field.
You can also rename typepads from the content library. Locate the typepad from the list of files in the content library and click on the Additional options button (three-dot icon) to the right of the file name.
