Making pages Common on AirMason

If you’re hosting multiple digital documents with shared content between them, use our common page feature to invisibly link individual pages – allowing you to update one in one document and publish across all, vs having to repeat the work in multiple documents.

What does “common page” mean?

To make a page “common” is to make it available to be copied or inserted into any other document in your AirMason account, with the added backend connection allowing them to be updated in sync. You can edit this common page from any of the documents it sits within, and the updates will be made simultaneously across any other documents it appears in.

We recommend that you read this guide carefully prior to using the feature, particularly the important need-to-knows. Reach out to any time for support or best practices.

Benefits of creating common pages include:

  • Update multiple documents simultaneously

  • Ensure consistency in look, design, and branding across different documents

  • Save time creating beautifully tailored documents for different subsets/teams of employees

  • Create a more seamless, personal-feeling experience for your team members


To ensure you use this feature correctly and without inadvertently affecting any of your existing documents, there are some important things to know:

1. Common pages must have a unique page title

If a common page is added to a document which already contains a page with the same title, the common page will override the existing. There are prompts and alerts on the platform, but consider checking and/or adjusting page titles if need be before adding a common page to a document.

2. Common pages will drop in at the end of the document

When you drop a common page into an existing document by following the steps below, you will find that page at the very end of the document you just placed it into and will need to drag to reorder this into the right spot.

Changing the order/placement of the common page in one document will not affect others; only the formatting, content and design is linked i.e. what appears on the page. Pages will need to be reordered manually.

Theme settings will override page formatting

So, if you have added a common page to a new document but the font is not the same, you may need to adjust your font under the Theme tab.

Common pages will always change across any book they appear in

That is to say, a Collaborator who has access to limited documents, but which share common pages with documents looked after by other Collaborators, will be able to edit those pages despite not being able to edit that document directly.

Common pages FAQ

How do I turn off a common page?

  1. Navigate to that page in the Editor, click on the common page symbol

2. Then toggle to “No” and click SAVE COMMON PAGE

Note: This turns off the common-paging in this document only. Page will still appear as common in any others it has been added to and will need to be turned off individually.

I accidentally updated a common page without unlinking it from a certain handbook. Is there a way for me to undo?

You can try the undo button on your toolbar, however if you have already nacigated away from the text box unfortunately no, there’s no undo button. However, if this was the only change you had made to the latest version, you may have the ability to revert to the previously published version and re-edit from there.
