Notice to all users:
At 3pm today, we had over 150 pieces of content checked out from over 50 content managers.
Since launch, we have received many calls from CM’s stating inability to edit content. This is a result of people not checking content back in once done editing a content item.
There is much overlap in content management responsibility for pages on our site. Please follow best practice, and be sure to publish content you have checked out (content where you’ve clicked the “edit” button). Items left checked out are inaccessible to your coworkers.
You can view whether an item is checked out or not by entering the workarea. If the status listed is “A” (Published Content) or “I” (Checked In Content), then you should be able (permissions –limiting) to edit that piece of content. If on the other hand, the item is listed as “O”, the content is checked out. One cannot monitor this from “front page” editing. This is why we have asked people to only edit their pages from the workarea, despite the convenience of hovering over the blue dots.
Thank you for your cooperation in keeping the CMS tidy.
