This option shows a thorough list of every book in your store, regardless of their publication status.


Published Books

Only books that have been successfully published and are readily available for purchase in your store are filtered and shown via the Published Books option.


Unpublished Books

Books that have not yet been published are listed under the Unpublished Books option. These books still need to be reviewed, edited, or finished.


Ready to Publish

The option labeled Ready to Publish shows books that have passed all necessary editing and revision stages and are prepared for publication. Here, you can locate books that are soon to be published.


Edited Books

A list of books with recent edits or modifications can be found by selecting the Edited Books option. You can use this option to keep track of books that have been updated.


Table of Book Information

A list of books available related to your store can be found in the input tables, depending on which page you are on (All Books, Edited Books, etc.). It offers a quick summary of crucial book information, including the title, vendor, number of downloads, publication date, book type, books of the group, publication status, and revision status.

Accessing the Table of Book Information
