Add/Edit Tree Family

Adding a tree family is the first step in creating a set of trees that map to specific subsite hierarchies. Create a general category for trees, then create one or more trees that mirror subsite structures within that family, and define tree properties. Once this process is complete, designers or contributors can select trees from defined families to generate a navigation structure automatically mapped to subsite structure. CommonSpot walks up the subsite hierarchy within the selected tree to find a match between XML tree nodes and named subsites and returns the first match found.
