Web Update & Approval Process
All changes to department websites are handled by faculty and staff. To gain access to the content management system (CMS), you must complete the training course.
Once you have completed training, you will be able to make updates and add content to every area of the website you are responsible for managing. After you make updates, your content will go through a three-step approval process.
Here's how the process works:
Make Sure Your Content is Ready for Approval
We all want our content to be perfect, but sometimes little things sneak by in the editing process.
Make sure you use the Content Approval Checklist before you advance your changes to the next step.
Submit Your Content for Moderator Approval
When you have finished creating and editing your content, you will notify the person in your department who is responsible for approving changes to the website. Once they have reviewed your changes, they will approve the content and it will advance to the next step in the process.
If you are your department's content approver, you will need to approve the changes via the "Approve Content" menu option or on the "Direct Edit" screen.
Submit Your Content for Publication
When your content has been approved at the department level, it will be submitted to Web Services for final approval and publication. We will review your content for grammar, spelling and punctuation, as well as accuracy, organization and readability.
All content received by 11 a.m. will be reviewed the same business day. Approved changes will begin publishing every day at 6 p.m., and will be visible on the website by 8 p.m.
