You can update the following:

(1) Description: This text or HTML will be shown on top of the CMS page of the component. This can be used to give additional information to the CMS user about the component.

(2) Reload: When you have a component that uses JavaScript libraries it might be necessary to reload the website preview page after editing.

(3) Availability: Switch Off if you don't want to show this component in the CMS component list. This can be handy for components that are only used once.  Doing so makes the component list more organized.

(4) Database: If you have databases active on your project you can switch a page component to a database component. Select the database (5) if you want to do this.
