Managing BYUH Websites

University Communications defines the structure, architecture, look, and feel of BYUH websites and regularly reviews online content to ensure that these websites follow the required policies and laws set forth by the university and the government. Department-specific content is owned and developed by each respective department. To align with these responsibilities, a workflow was established in the university's chosen content management system to allow department ownership of the content but review and revision by University Communications.

The permissions and responsibility for managing and revising website content lie with the site's content manager. Each department website has one content manager assigned to own, develop, and approve the published content for that department. Each site can have up to three content editors, two of which can be student employees. Exceptions have been granted for departments with multiple sub-departments with differing direction and content.

Site Content Managers

Before publishing, University Communications reviews new content and revisions to ensure coordination, function, and required expectations are met.

Website Roles

Department Content Manager

The department content manager is a supervisory role that has the responsibility to approve all online content changes coming from that department. This role should be assigned to a full-time employee.

Department Content Editor

A content editor can be anyone in a department who will be adding or changing content on your website. This can be a full-time, part-time, or student employee. Each site can have up to three content editors if one of the content editors is a full-time employee. There is a limit of two student content editors.

Request Website Permissions

Requests to become a department content manager or content editor will be approved by the current content manager or the director, manager, or dean of the department. This approval is documented and administered by email once the permissions request form has been completed.
