WCMS “people” survey summary

IST's Web Development team conducted a WCMS “people” survey to gather feedback from WCMS users that will help inform how “people” information is displayed on a website.

The survey was available to WCMS Point of Contacts (POCs) for a period of two weeks and received submissions from participants who were asked to comment on: how “people” are displayed; how information could be updated or configured; the content types used to display “people” information; how the “people” information is structed within the site; limitations or obstacles to using the current functionality.

For more details, download the WCMS “people” survey summary (PPTX) from the Building the Next WCMS website.

WCMS course offerings

Classroom offerings of our WCMS courses will not be offered at this time. Anyone needing to complete the training can do so via LEARN.

We are back - virtually!

Have a question, or need some help with your website? A virtual Drop-in lab will be open every Thursday afternoon from 1-4 p.m. to provide WCMS content maintainers one-on-one website and training support.
