- Description. Description of the Brand.
- Reading Order Reversed. Determines whether the pages in the Issue are displayed left-to-right or right-to-left (reversed) when viewed in the Publication Overview of Content Station.

- Default Publication Channel. Defines the Default Publication Channel. Setting this option will be possible when Publication Channels have been set up. This will be covered in a later step.
- Activate Relative Deadlines. (Since Enterprise 9.2) Activates the functionality for assigning deadlines to Categories and Workflow Statuses. When selected, the 'Time Settings' icon appears.
- Time Settings. (Since Enterprise 9.2 this option only appears when 'Activate Relative Deadlines' is selected. For previous versions, the option is displayed by default.) Opens the Relative Deadlines page. Setting this option will be covered in a later step; leave it as it is for now.
