Administrators can configure the system to display rich content snippets in Stories, Pages, and Sites when it detects certain URL patterns, the same way that other end-user collaboration tools offer to embed rich content. To configure rich content snippets for newsfeeds across the application please see Enable HTML snippets.

This article provides instructions to configure and manage the Editorial Snippets on the Appspace Intranet (powered by Beezy) platform.


  • Global or Local Admin permissions.

Navigation Layout and Interface

In order to access the Navigation dashboard on the Intranet platform, go to Settings > Site settings > Beezy settings > Editorial settings > Snippets > Editorial Snippets.

You can add a new Editorial snippet, which will create an empty row with four columns:

  • In URL pattern type the URL pattern you want the application to recognize.
  • In Iframe URL paste the source of the iframe of your custom rich content provider that you want the application to render.
  • In Thumbnail you can paste the URL of an image or the URL of the thumbnail provider for your custom service in case of a video. This parameter is optional.
  • In Name you may name the snippet.

The URL has to match perfectly, if not the transformation will not be applied.

You can use wildcard parameters in both URL and template, i.e. if you type the following URL pattern:{guid}

Appspace Intranet will be able to use these values in the iframe source:{guid}?autoplay=false

It is safer to not use numbers as parameters:


https://{domain} site collection might be different in your environment. Adapt the URL pattern and the Iframe URL with your site collection.
