About the Interface

The WYSIWYG Editor is often the default view when logging in using a DirectEdit link on a page. When accessing the CMS, other tabs, menus, and functionality are available depending on authority level and site design.

Tabs Overview

The OU Campus tabbed interface provides a view of the CMS. For example, the Content > Pages view shows a listing of directories, files, and page action icons. Depending upon the authority level, various tabs and other functionality are available. The available tabs are as follows:

  • Dashboard
  • Content
  • Add-Ons (if an Add-On has been added)

For example, for Level 5 through 9 user level, the Dashboard and Content tabs are available. The Add-Ons tab might also be visible if an administrator has added a link for the add-on tab.

Dashboard Tab

The Dashboard facilitates a user's Inbox and Outbox, as well as the ability to compose messages and manage the workflow. It also shows Current Projects (pages checked out to the user), Broken Pages, and general user settings and preferences.

Content Tab

The Content tab is the most used section of OU Campus. It can consist of several submenu items depending on authority level. These include:

  • Pages
  • Assets (as assigned)
  • Recent Saves
  • Recent Publishes

Content contributors can navigate the Pages view in order to edit, create, and publish new content. This includes adding assets, snippets, rss feeds and other content to pages. This might also include reviewing changed pages, assigning pages to an approver, and publishing pages. User level determines the available functionality of the Content tab.

Add-Ons Tab

The Add-Ons tab provides an interface for custom applications. Available functionality can be setup by any Level 10 administrators.
