How to Use the CMS

This section contains step-by-step instructions for the tasks you will be performing in the CMS. Please select a topic in the left navigation for further instructions.

New Users

New user access to a CMS site must be requested by the Project Sponsor or Project Lead of the site. Either may send the request to and include the site's name and Andrew ID of the new user.

All new users are required to have a one-hour initial training session prior to using the CMS. Training sessions are available in Cyert Hall on a regular basis; each trainee must bring a laptop to complete the training.

New Sites
