As we go into the Thanksgiving break, we wanted to alert our CMS users that an upgrade to Cascade Server is coming Tuesday, December 3! We will alert everyone when they need to be logged out of the system, but no existing pages/content will be affected. We think you’ll be pleased with several new features available:
Saved User History
Now your history will be saved after you log out of the CMS. Pages you frequently edit will be listed in your History menu (in the blue task bar at the top of the page).
Smart Version Comments
When a page is submitted and a new version of that page is recorded, a summary of changes will be created for viewing in the version comments. You can now view the versions log and roll back to a previous version of the page more easily, if needed.
Stale Content Reporting
A list of pages, widgets, or other assets in the system that haven’t been updated within six months can now be exported to an Excel spreadsheet to help you keep track of pages that could be outdated.
Improved Image Editing Capabilities
Cropping dimensions will now be displayed while selecting a crop area. You can lock the cropping aspect ratio so that your images don’t become distorted by holding down the Shift key while selecting that area.
We are looking forward to more training workshops when we return from the break and as the fall semester comes to a close. We appreciate the positive feedback we’ve received from trainees as well as the comments that are helping us improve the process. We are truly thankful for our partners in this venture and invite all CMS users to reach out for any support and assistance they might need.
