Upon login, you’ll arrive on the dashboard. The dashboard is the main landing page after you login to Campus Suite. It will be different for you depending on your access level and role. Administrators see everything and so there will be many links and views. A publisher may only see a small number of options as the controls will be limited to only what that publisher can do. Let's review the left-hand links on the dashboard.
Below your profile panel, you will see the Campus Suite support panel. Here, you can link out to the support website to search and review support articles and videos. You can also submit and view support tickets with our support team.
In the middle of the main dashboard screen, you will see quick-links to jump out to frequently access sites or departments that you manage. This is customizable based on the sites and departments you “favorite” by marking them with a star. Below that, you will see a history of logins to the website.
Admin tools are listed as links down the left-most navigation;
Takes a user back to the main screen seen after they login. On the main dashboard screen, users can view and modify their profile in Campus Suite, submit support tickets, and review open tickets. Administrators can review resource usage statistics and login activity. Based on your security level, you may see some or all of these functions.
This is used during the initial build of your website. It is our "Process and Timeline" screen. You’ll refer to this screen throughout the development process. This screen not only shows what step we are on, but who owns that step, and whether or not that step has been completed. Completed items have a green check mark next to them. When we received your completed customer questionnaire, we'll check that item off for you. On some of these steps, you might notice a time frame in perenthesis. These are simply suggested times that will give you an idea on the amount of time it might take to properly complete the task. These times will vary and be dependent on the way you individually work.
We have two main objectives during this stage of our project, first, build out all the departments and pages you need for your district and school websites, and second, incorporate good page titles and meta descriptions for each. We'll start you off with a pre-defined architecture that has common school district departments and pages. You will be shown how to edit this architecture so that it perfectly suits your needs. Once done, we'll publish the architecture and begin the web page migration/production process. The Campus Suite content migration team will go out and pull the content found on your live website to the staged counterpart in Campus Suite.
