Introductory Kentico training

Advancement & External Relations offers an introductory training for UW Bothell web content editors who use Kentico to maintain web pages for their department, program or school. These sessions will temporary stop beginning Friday March 9th through Friday April 13th. Training sessions will resume the week of April 16th. 

Training overview

It is mandatory to complete a training with the Advancement & External Relations Web Team. After training is complete, the web team will grant the trainee the agreed upon access.

  • How to edit content using toolbar features (images, headings, bullets, etc.)
  • Web accessibility, UW branding and other responsibilities
  • Create hyperlinks (external links, files, email)
  • Practice page management (Properties, Checkout, Publish, etc.)
  • Become familiar with online resources and support

Prerequisites

To access Kentico you must have a UW Bothell Access Account (UWBID). A portion of the training is interactive and requires trainees to log in to Kentico; those without a UWBID at the training will be rescheduled. Employees cannot use coworker accounts; the trainer will be verifying accounts.

Request a UWB access account

To request editing access, Primary Publishers should please fill out the CMS Request Form and specify what level of permission the new content editor should have within their directory. Please note that student-staff will not be allowed to be the final publisher on content. Learn more about requesting CMS access

Access changes 

The responsibility of granting Kentico access will change April 16th when version 10 of Kentico is live. The Web Team will know be responsible for giving new content editors appropriate access to the specified top level directory. The new process will be posted prior to the first intro-training on 4/19/2018.
