Your colleagues report that the UBCMS is easy to learn, navigate and very intuitive to use. Plus, it has some helpful tools and enhancements, including keyboard shortcuts, many different page templates, the ability to easily copy from one page to another, and powerful tools such as the "Diff" Compare Pages tool and the Mobile Device Simulator. It is also fully integrated with UB's SiteImprove accessibility platform.
These were developed expressly for the UBCMS:
Unlike traditional Windows applications, right-clicking and double-clicking have no special function in the UBCMS. Instead, select an item then look for additional options.
The UBCMS uses a series of consoles:
Sites Console: This is where you will create, rename/move, publish, and delete pages. It also has a Side Panel with 'drawers' for Content and Timeline (versions and modifications).
Edit Console: This is Edit Mode. Modify page content here (but you must generally return to the Sites Console to act on an entire page). Click the Toggle Side Panel button (upper left of the page) to reveal a sidebar with 'drawers' for Components and Assets (versions and modifications). And page properties and other tools are accessed by clicking the Page Information too ('equalizer' icon) at the top left of the page.
Assets Console: Only accessible from the Start page.
