Kentico Training Overview

Advancement & External Relations offers an introductory class for UW Bothell web publishers and editors who use Kentico to maintain web pages for their department, program or school. In this approximately one and a half hour class users will learn how to:

  • Create and edit web pages and text (copy/paste, headings, tool bar)
  • Proper use of Headings and UW Brand overview
  • Manage images (insert, resize)
  • Create different types of hyper links (web, content, file, email)
  • Practice page management (Properties, Checkout, Publish, etc.)
  • Become familiar with online resources (documentation, UW branding guidelines, accessibility laws, etc.)

It is mandatory to complete a training with Advancement & External Relations immediately after receiving Kentico access. Once you have access, please wait until the training is complete before making edits to the website.


To access Kentico you must have a UW Bothell Access Account (UWBID). Employees cannot use a coworker's account. 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.  

To get an Access Account, please have your supervisor fill out the UWBID request form here. A UWBID and UW NetID are seperate accounts. For more information about these accounts, please visit IT's Access Account request page

Request editing access

To request editing rights please fill out the CMS Request Form. After you have submitted this form, an email will be sent to the page's Primary Publisher; only the Primary Publisher of that page can grant access to a directory.

If the site you want access to is not listed on the form, please email and the Office of Advancement & External Relations will assist you.

If you are a Primary Publisher and you are unsure of how to grant access, please see the instructions on the CMS Access Request Administration page.
