What Is a Slot?


A slot is a small opening or groove in something, such as a post office mail box. It is also a way to manage air traffic at large airports, which prevents repeated delays from multiple flights.

Types and Functions

A type of HTML element, the slot is part of the Web Components technology suite. The slot is similar to the table and container elements, but it includes global attributes, which you can use to define its functionality.

Content types

The format, structure and syntax of slots are identical to those of content types, including keywords, properties, choosers and other components. The main difference is that slots and the slot items they create are stored in separate repositories to your content, and you can label these repositories however you like.


Slots in Architect allow you to create multiple synonyms that describe the same slot item, which can help you avoid confusion when mapping to different parts of the system. You can also delete a synonym by hovering over it and clicking the X.
